Online sports betting operator, MansionBet, has today announced they have renewed their partnership with Arena Racing Company (ARC) and Jockey Club Racecourses (JCR) in their continued support of British racing for 2021.
With over 360 races across 60 fixtures at racecourses including, Market Rasen, Huntingdon, Doncaster, Ffos Las and Newcastle, MansionBet will also take the title sponsorship of Newbury’s Spring Cup, and Official Betting Partner of Goodwood’s Opening Saturday, both of which will be broadcast live on ITV1.
The announcement follows the sportsbook’s successful sponsorship in 2020 throughout an unprecedented year, which saw racing take place behind closed doors from April. Their branding appeared across a number of racecourses, ending the year with the MansionBet Challow Hurdle day last week at Newbury.
MansionBet’s first sponsored fixture of 2021 will air live on ITV4 from Wincanton on 9th January, followed by further races scheduled for broadcast on ITV, Racing TV and Sky Sports Racing.
David Murphy, CMO at Mansion said: “We are both excited and proud to continue our support of British racing into 2021. Having taken huge steps forward to improve our racing product over the last 12 months, we continue to strive to deliver the best offering to our customers.
2020 was a challenging year for racecourses across the country and we’re pleased to be able to put our name to over 60 events at 26 different venues in 2021.”
David Leyden Dunbar, ARC’s Group Director of Partnerships commented: “It’s been terrific to work with the team at MansionBet since 2019 and to watch our partnership along with the brand’s commitment to British Horseracing go from strength to strength. Our racecourse teams look forward to working with them again in 2021 and delivering a fantastic schedule of racing across many of our courses throughout the year.”
