Speedway came to Mildenhall, in the Fens, for the first time in 1975 at the Mildenhall Stadium on Hayland Drove. The initial meeting was held on the 18th May of that year, although the Fen Tigers were defeated by Scunthorpe by 41-37.  They were in the National League for the seasons 1975 to 1989 inclusive and by 1992 were in the second tier of the British League. The final match of the 1989 season was a success by 52-43 against Ipswich and the Tigers began to prepare for the 1990 season.  However, they were expelled from the League a few days before for the start of that season.

They returned to full action in the British League Division 3 in 1994, starting with a slender victory against Iwade.
