Betway to celebrate New Year’s Day at MusselburghReading Time: 2 minutes

 

Leading online bookmaker becomes race day sponsor at top Scottish racecourse

 

Leading online bookmaker Betway has been announced as the sponsor of Musselburgh Racecourse’s prestigious New Year’s Day race day.

The key fixture in the East Lothian track’s jumps season attracts a crowd of 5,000 racegoers and two races, both to be sponsored by Betway, will be broadcast live as part of ITV’s festive racing package which is anchored from Cheltenham.

The bookmaker will sponsor the feature races on the day, each valued at £30,000, the Betway Auld Reekie Steeple Chase and Betway Hogmaneigh Hurdle, as well as the remainder of the card.

It will also have naming and branding rights to the January 1 meeting and branding opportunities at two other Musselburgh fixtures on January 7 and 18.

Betway’s Alan Alger said: “With racing sponsorships already in place across England and in Ireland, we’re delighted to now be expanding into Scotland.

“Musselburgh has a deep and rich history of racing and we’re very pleased to be a part of its future, starting with a cracking day’s racing on New Year’s Day. With £30,000 up for grabs in both the Betway Auld Reekie Chase and the Betway Hogmaneigh Hurdle, and the ITV Racing cameras in attendance, hopefully we’ll see some hotly-contested renewals.”

Musselburgh Racecourse’s senior operations and commercial manager, Sarah Montgomery, said: “Our New Year’s Day meeting grows year-on-year and is now established as an important fixture in the UK racing calendar. We are delighted to secure the support of leading industry brand Betway and look forward to establishing a long-term mutually beneficial relationship.

“We have made significant investment in recent years to improve the raceday experience by introducing luxury marquees, top class entertainment and high quality locally sourced food and drinks suppliers, which all contributes to making New Year at Musselburgh an unforgettable way to welcome in the year.

“This exciting new partnership with Betway means we can crack on with our plans to strengthen the New Year’s Day meeting by improving the quality of racing on the track and enhancing the quality of off-track facilities and entertainment.”
