Opening the series is the MXGP of Great Britain on 19-20 February, followed by the MXGP of Argentina, with the next confirmed round being the MXGP of The Netherlands on 27 March.

After the opening four rounds, the championship will head to the MXGP of Trentino, then Latvis, MFR, Sardegna and Spain before the MXGP of France. Following the event at Ernee, the series moves to the MXGP of Germany before heading overseas again to Indonesia, for the Jakarta and Indonesian GPs in rounds 12 and 13.
