Brighton Racecourse and Arena Racing Company (“ARC”) are delighted to announce that Marathonbet will be the headline sponsor of the racecourse’s Festival of Racing. The Marathonbet Festival of Racing takes place between Wednesday 9 August and Friday 11 August 2017.

Marathonbet will see their branding displayed prominently throughout Brighton Racecourse, put their name to six races throughout the three-day Festival and work in partnership with Brighton Racecourse to bring exciting and unexpected experiences to racegoers.

Marathonbet will also be looking to engage with racing fans in the run up to the meeting with online competitions and offers.

Executive Director of Brighton Racecourse, Sam Windridge, commented: “We’re delighted to have Marathonbet on board for the Brighton Festival of Racing in August. They have made great strides in recent years with a series of high-profile sponsorship agreements in the UK and abroad. We’re now looking forward to becoming part of the trusted Marathonbet experience and building a lasting relationship for the future.”

Viktor Hoffmann, Marathonbet CEO, said: “Horseracing is one of the most-loved and frequently-watched sports in the UK, making our decision to partner with Brighton Racecourse an easy one.

“As city neighbours, we already recognise how the beautiful views and action-packed cards at Brighton make for a brilliant day at the races. Together with the racecourse team, we’re committed to championing that message further to new and wider audiences.

“We’ve got plenty in store for the public heading to the festival in August and can’t wait for it to get started.”
