The 26th of December will see MansionBet continue their affiliation with horseracing, ending the year with Boxing Day at Huntingdon Racecourse.
This race will be the final one in a busy calendar for 2019 that has seen the gambling firm up their game in the horse racing stakes.
At the end of 2018 MansionBet announced that they would be entering into a new partnership with Arena Racing Company (ARC) and Jockey Club Racecourses (JCR), that would see the Gibraltar based firm take over the sponsorship of 38 different horseracing events.
The deal has seen them act as sponsors for meetings at Ffos Las, Sedgefield, Hereford, Southwell, Great Yarmouth and Worcester racecourses. Add to this MansionBet raceday events at Nottingham and Market Rasen, culminating 2019 at Huntingdon on Boxing Day.
At the time that the original announcement was made towards the end of 2018, Mansion Group CEO Karel Manasco stated that:
“We are excited to expand our horseracing sponsorship with further 38 events across the UK,”
Adding, “We recognise horseracing as one of our most popular sports, and we look forward to supporting this through our sponsorships.”
David Leyden Dunbar, representative of ARC also stated: “We are delighted to welcome MansionBet to ARC racecourses with 16 fixtures across the end of 2018 and into 2019. We know that British racing offers fantastic value to sponsors, including those within the gambling sector, and we look forward to working with the MansionBet team to help build their brand within the sport.”
With Amy Starkey from Jockey Club Racecourses adding: “I am thrilled to welcome MansionBet as a sponsor for the East Region of the Jockey Club.
“The popularity of the sport in the East continues to grow, and we are pleased that MansionBet will be joining us on this journey. We look forward to working together for fixtures at Huntingdon, Nottingham and Market Rasen over the coming months.”
What Next for MasionBet and Horseracing?
A year on from this announcement and we are left with one meet left on the calendar, waiting to find out if new deals will be struck in 2020. If this does happen then you can be sure that an announcement will be in the next few weeks, if days, which will subsequently give us some insight into the success of the events that took place this year.
Boxing Day Football at Mansion
The day after Christmas is likely to be a busy one for everyone at MansionBet, with Boxing Day at the races and both of the Premier League football teams they are affiliated with in action on what will prove to be a big day for, not just the teams involved, but also for Amazon Prime, who will have exclusive access to all the matches for Prime subscribers in the UK.
In a 3pm clash Bournemouth will take on fellow strugglers Arsenal at home in a match that could see the Cherries move ahead of the Gunners in the table. Then, at 5.30pm Newcastle will travel to Manchester to take on the Red Devils, with both teams looking to end a relatively disappointing run of games with the Toon looking for a repeat of their shock victory over United earlier in the season.
