Leading online bookmaker signs fresh deals and contract extensions across five Jockey Club racecourses
Betway has signed new deals with Market Rasen and Sandown Park to feature as the major race sponsors at two ITV-broadcasted meetings next summer.
The leading online bookmaker will sponsor two of National Hunt racing’s major summer races before moving on to two big days of Flat racing at Sandown. The Betway Summer Hurdle and Betway Summer Plate will take place at Market Rasen on Saturday 20th July 2019.
Betway’s Alan Alger commented, “It looks set to be a very exciting 2019 for all of us here at Betway. New deals to sponsor top races at Market Rasen and Sandown, both of which are on the ITV Racing schedule, will help us gain further exposure on the racing circuit, while we’re also very pleased to be extending our current deals at Wincanton, Newmarket and Haydock."
Alger added, "We already have some great racing sponsorships, including at the All Weather Championships, the Betway Champion Chase at Cheltenham and as the official betting partner of the Grand National Festival, and we should now have a near-constant presence on and off the racecourse next year with these new deals in place.”
Paul Fisher, Chief Executive of Jockey Club Racecourses remarked, “We’re delighted to have the support of Betway for these racedays in 2019."
Fisher concluded, “Their sponsorship of these fixtures plays an important part in promoting our sport and the Jockey Club Racecourses calendar for next year. We’re very much looking forward to working with them.”
