2012 runner-up Perry and reigning British U19 champion Nielsen are among nine seeded riders who go straight through to the final at Monmore Green on Tuesday, April 23.
They will be joined by the top seven riders from next month's semi-final at Plymouth.
“It’s an exciting group of youngsters, including three riders – Jake Knight, Adam Ellis and Josh Bates – who will all be making their Premier League debuts this season," said GB co-boss Neil Vatcher of the semi-final line-up.

“We have Dudley’s two 15-year-olds Max Clegg and double British Youth Champion Nathan Greaves, so along with Dan Greenwood I’m sure they’ll have some support from the magnificent Heathens supporters.
“Connor Coles should have support at Plymouth too, being the son of Exeter legend Michael, and the meeting also includes Plymouth asset Danny Stoneman, whilst I’m sure Liam Carr and Richard Andrews will both be out to impress National League promoters as they are still looking for a team place for the coming season.”
