Arena Racing Company (“ARC”) is delighted to announce a partnership with William Hill which sees the bookmaker open betting facilities on six of its racecourses.
William Hill has also signed a three-year deal to sponsor the Group 1 St Leger Stakes at Doncaster, worth £700,000 this year, along with a feature race each day of the four-day festival which will be known as ‘The William Hill St Leger Festival’ and run from Wednesday 13 September to Saturday 16 September 2017.
This betting facilities agreement between ARC and William Hill follows on from the long-term media rights deal agreed between William Hill and The Racing Partnership in December 2016.
William Hill’s Divisional Director for the Northern Region, Steven White, said: “The William Hill facilities at Doncaster are already proving popular so we are excited about extending our presence to the on-course betting facilities at five other of ARC’s racecourses including Lingfield Park, Royal Windsor, Southwell, Wolverhampton, Worcester. On course customers will receive the full William Hill service enabling them to bet on other courses as well as other sports while viewing the best of the day’s televised sporting action.”
ARC’s Director of Operations, Mark Spincer said: “We are really pleased to have been able to work with William Hill to ensure all these betting facilities will be open in the coming weeks. As a leading betting operator, and key sponsor partner of ARC, William Hill’s facilities are well placed to meet all customers’ needs and thrive in the years ahead.”
