As the host nation, Denmark is already qualified for next Saturday's World Cup final in this year's Speedway of Nations at the Vojens Speedway Center, but which six nations the Danes will face will be decided in two semi-finals on Wednesday and Thursday, also in Vojens, where 14 nations will line up in the absolute strongest setup.

Individual world champions such as Polish Bartosz Zmarzlik, British Tai Woffinden and Australian Jason Doyle are among the profiles who will be looking for a place in the top three, in the two semi-finals, which give access to the final itself.

The international motor union FIM has now published the final team line-ups and drawn lots for the starting positions.

The Danish team will be announced at a press conference in Vojens, Wednesday 27 July at 1:30 p.m
