William Hill enters third year of Racing League sponsorship

William Hill has been confirmed as the official betting partner of the Racing League 2023 competition.

The bookmaker sponsors the team, points-based, horse racing competition – launched in July 2021 for six weeks at racecourses around the UK – for the third consecutive year.

It will gain exclusive naming rights to all races as well as exclusive access and content throughout.

A spokesperson for William Hill said: “We are looking forward to being involved with Racing League again. It’s a really innovative and unique concept within horse racing which offers great prize money and competitive racing for all involved, and we’d like to continue supporting that. 

“It promises to be a fantastic six weeks and we’re looking forward to seeing who will win the race to the top and be crowned the 2023 champions. 

“As was the case in 2022, we’re also putting up £4,600 for grooms. They play a vital role in the horse racing industry and should be rewarded for all the hard work they put in.”

In 2023, Racing League will see seven teams of racehorse trainers and jockeys representing seven regions of GB&I competing across six fixtures, starting on 27 July at Great Yarmouth.  

Over £2,000,000 in prize money will be available across a total of 42 races with teams earning points for their finishing positions in each race.

“We were really happy with how Racing League progressed in 2022, and are looking forward to an even bigger and better version this year,” added Jeremy Wray, CEO of Racing League. 

“William Hill are long-term supporters of racing in this country, and we are delighted they are supporting the Racing League again. We look forward to working together in promoting both their brand, as well as our competition to new and existing racing fans across the country.”
