William Hill appointed official betting partner of Racing League
Racing League today confirm a deal with William Hill named as official betting partner of the 2022 competition.
In 2022, Racing League will see teams of racehorse trainers and jockeys representing seven regions of Great Britain and Ireland competing across six fixtures, starting on Thursday 4 August at Doncaster. 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.
As in 2021, there will be a prize for both the top Team as well as for the Jockey who accumulates the most points across Racing League. Official betting partners William Hill make The East favourites for the overall title at 5/2, with Daniel Muscutt, riding for London and The South, an 8/1 chance to be crowned top jockey.
Liam McKee, Director of Media, Sponsorship and UK Creative at William Hill, said: “The innovative and unique concept of Racing League has always appealed to us at William Hill and, with the planned changes to the 2022 format, we’re really excited to be involved in Racing League once again. We’re looking forward to seeing who will win the race to the top and be crowned the 2022 Champions.”
Jeremy Wray, CEO of Racing League, said: “We took in a huge amount of feedback following the inaugural running of Racing League in 2021, and have been keen to add a number of innovations into this year’s competition.
“125 trainers have signed up to take part, in regional teams this year, which we hope will create a competition that is equally as compelling for racing fans and punters. William Hill are, of course, well known and long time supporters of racing in this country, and we are delighted to welcome them back to Racing League. We look forward to working together in promoting both their brand, as well as our competition to racing fans and their customer base alike.”
