Betting firm Betway has announced that they've extended their sponsorship agreement with Aintree and will continue being the Official Betting Partner of the Randox Health Grand National Festival horse race for the next five years.
The agreement will see Betway getting their name on the races, which will be named the Betway Bowl, Betway Aintree Hurdle, Betway Top Novices' Hurdle, Betway Mildmay Novices' Chase, Betway Mersey Novices' Hurdle and the Betway Handicap Chase. The operator will also have exclusive marketing opportunities, such as promoting the races on their website. Betway has been sponsoring the event since 2015 and has obviously been happy with the arrangement.
Commenting on the extension Betway CEO Anthony Werkman said, "The Randox Health Grand National Festival is a fantastic event and we couldn't be happier with how the last two years have gone. The racing over the three days is of the highest quality and we're delighted to be continuing our involvement for a further five years.
"With massive crowds on the racecourse and a huge TV audience, the National meeting is one of the biggest occasions in the sporting calendar and one that we are proud to be a part of."
Jockey Club Racecourses North West Regional Director Dickon White also commented, adding: "We are thrilled that Betway will be extending its sponsorship at the Randox Health Grand Festival for a further five years.
"Over the past three seasons, Betway has brought tremendous energy and enthusiasm to its role as official betting partner of the Randox Health Grand National Festival and we look forward to continuing to work alongside all the Betway team."
