Premier Greyhouse Racing launches first fixture schedule

Premier Greyhouse Racing, a media rights company created to bring the sport to operators and fans alike, has announced its fixture schedule to company subscribers.

This will allow owners, bookmakers and racegoers the chance to prepare for the 59 meetings per-week schedule, up to six months in advance.

Lord Lipsey, Premier Greyhound Racing Chair, said: “This schedule is Premier Greyhound Racing’s plan for the future. For bookmakers, it will offer a race every few minutes for their retail and online customers.

“For fans it will bring the very best greyhound racing action direct across a range of platforms, not to mention top-quality entertainment to their local track.

“We will be delivering a bigger, bolder and sustainable vision for our sport.”

Premier Greyhound Racing is a project formed by a partnership between Arena Racing Company and Entain, which launched on 1 December 2021.

As well as building a prize-money pool of £2.5m ($3.1m), Premier Greyhouse Racing has also donated £100,Casino games000 to The Greyhound Board of Great Britain’s Welfare Strategy: A Good Life for Every Greyhouse.

This will be used to support the long-term care of racing greyhounds both during and after their careers.

Mark Kingston, Director of Media & Technology, Arena Racing Company, said: “We are pleased to announce this schedule which meets the needs of the sport’s stakeholders.

“This includes retail bookmakers, all of which are contracted to take PGR from 1 January 2024, alongside additional fixtures to support our digital and international partners.

“We look forward to continue working closely with Entain, given our mutual commitment to maintaining high standards of welfare across our venues.”

Earlier this year, Premier Greyhound Racing announced a deal with brands from William Hill, Betfred, Entain and Flutter.
