Reading are likely to stay in the Premier League next season - despite rumours of a move into the Sky Sports Elite League.

Racers promoter Pat Bliss said: "We would stress that, at the present time, we are not looking to move to the Elite League and a move has never been a consideration. We are currently actively building the Racers team for the 2004 Premier League campaign."

Whether, as now looks likely, or not Reading remain in the Premier League, the Elite League numbers will be increased next season with the addition of at least one more participant after the recent news that Swindon are taking the plunge.

Arena Essex are tipped for a return to Elite level and it remains to be seen if that whisper becomes reality.
