BetUK, part of LeoVegas Group, has announced an exclusive sponsorship deal with Arena Racing Company (ARC), the owners and operators of four of the six all-weather courses in the UK, and pioneers of the Championships. The sponsorship sees BetUK occupy advertising space across 600 races, in addition to naming rights.
Ahead of the tenth season of the All-Weather Championships, BetUK has secured multi-year sponsorship rights to Marathon, Middle Distance, and Sprint races staged during winter meetings at the four ARC-owned racetracks of Southwell, Wolverhampton, Lingfield Park, and Newcastle. The sponsorship deal is for an initial three-year period.
ARC operate 16 racecourses in total across Great Britain, accounting for roughly two-fifths of overall British Racing fixtures. They were a pioneer in the creation of the All-Weather Championships in 2013, established in an effort to promote all-weather racing and encourage owners and trainers to maintain the condition of their horses during the winter months.
As part of the agreement, BetUK banners and adverts will be displayed prominently around these four racecourses, which will reach an audience of both attendees and television viewers, with racecards featuring the brand’s logo, alongside ITV and Sky Racing each broadcasting selected races. BetUK also receives exclusive naming rights to all of the races across the series.
Chris Welch, Chief Commercial Officer at LeoVegas Group, said; “BetUK, Britain’s fastest-growing betting brand, is proud to sponsor The All-Weather Championships in their tenth season. We are thrilled to sponsor 600 races over the next 3 years. As this is our first major Racing sponsorship, it was important to find the right partner and the right quality races that match our vision and ambition for the BetUK brand. Racing punters are already enjoying over 40,000 live-streamed races from around the world on our site and we are sure this high-profile sponsorship will further cement BetUK as a punters’ favourite”.
Regarding the deal with BetUK, Director of Commercial Strategy & Partnerships at ARC, David Leyden Dunbar, said; “As the All-Weather Championships enter their tenth season, they are now a firmly established part of the British Horse Racing calendar. I’m delighted to welcome our new partner, BetUK, to the Championships and thank them for their support of the Sprint, Middle Distance and Marathon categories. The Championships continue to provide a compelling racing narrative with plenty of exciting action ahead over the winter period taking us through to the crowning of our new Champions on Good Friday with £1 million in prize money on offer”.
The first meeting gets underway at Newcastle Racecourse during the afternoon of October 18th, with BetUK offering exclusive promotions to players ahead of the opening fixture.

Jonas Warrer appointed acting group CEO of GiG
Following September’s announcement of Richard Brown stepping down from the role of CEO, the GiG Board of Directors has appointed Jonas Warrer as the acting group CEO effective from today. Jonas Warrer is currently the CEO of GiG’s Media division and will take on dual responsibility until the proposed process of the entities split is complete. Richard Brown will continue to support the business in an advisory board position until 31st December 2023 while the Platform & Sportbook division has secured strong leadership of Richard Carter, appointed as its CEO back in August.
Mr Warrer joined GiG in September 2017 through the acquisition of Rebel Penguin Aps, where he was founder and managing director. He has since worked to build up GiG Media, stepping up as Managing Director for the business unit since October 2019. GiG Media has seen a strong and impressive development under his leadership.
GiG initiated a strategic review earlier this year with the intention to split the Company into two separate companies, GiG Media and Platform & Sportsbook, giving the business units the potential to grow faster than in the current corporate structure.
Petter Nylander, Executive Chairman of GiG says: “We are very pleased to appoint Jonas as acting CEO through the process of splitting GiG into two distinct entities to enhance future expansion and drive shareholder value, in addition to his role as head of GiG Media. He has long experience within GiG and the industry and has been part of GiG’s executive management for 4 years”.
