RMG expands UK racecourse portfolio
Racecourse Media Group (RMG), the holding company for various media and data rights covering 34 UK racecourses, is to add Leicester, Stratford-on-Avon and Taunton to its collection of venues.
Leicester Racecourse will join on May 1, with Stratford and Taunton to follow on July 1, expanding RMG’s portfolio to 37 of the UK’s 60 racecourses.
RMG-owned specialist racing channel Racing UK will broadcast live coverage of races at each of the venues.
The deal covers all audio-visual rights, with licensed betting office rights for the venues forming part of RMG’s agreement with SIS.
Richard FitzGerald, chief executive of RMG, said: “RMG has added seven courses since 2012 and the extra fixtures further strengthen the Racing UK membership.
“The quality of the racing at all three courses sits perfectly with Racing UK’s output.”
