Seven WorldTour teams will participate in the first edition of the Revolution Champions League. The league is a partnership between Revolution and Velon, aiming to bring the best road teams to the track to compete against winners from the UK Championship.

The competition is made up of 12 elite teams: five qualifiers and seven UCI WorldTour teams. The UK championship takes place in September and October. The Champions League runs across three weekends in November and culminates with the final at the Lee Valley VeloPark in London in December.

The goal of the series is to expand eventually internationally with the creation of new regional leagues.
