Betway secure Grand National Festival sponsorship
Leading online bookmaker to be official betting partner of Aintree’s headline race meeting
Betway has signed a seven-figure three-year deal with Jockey Club Racecourses to become the official betting partner of this year’s Grand National Festival at Aintree, to be held on Thursday 6th – Saturday 8th April.

The leading online bookmaker, who also sponsors the Betway Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, has expanded its backing to sponsor this year’s top race meeting in the North West.

Grade 1 contests, the Betway Bowl Steeple Chase, Betway Aintree Hurdle, Betway Mildmay Novices’ Steeple Chase and Betway Mersey Novices’ Hurdle are all now part of the bookmaker’s sponsorship stable, and the Betway Handicap Steeple Chase will also hold the firm’s name.

Betway, who gained Authorised Betting Partner status in October 2016, has already penned deals to sponsor the Grade 2 Betway Kingmaker Novices’ Chase at Warwick on 11th February and the Grade 2 Betway Kingwell Hurdle on 18th February.

Anthony Werkman, Marketing and Operations Director at Betway, said: “The Grand National Festival at Aintree is a hugely important race meeting and we’re delighted to be its new official betting partner.

“With the Betway Champion Chase in March, the Betway Lincoln on 1st April and now our sponsorship at Aintree, spring is going to be a very exciting time of year for us.”
