RMG welcomes Fakenham Racecourse to media rights group
Horse racing media rights-holder Racecourse Media Group (RMG) has announced Fakenham Racecourse as its latest member.
RMG will work with the Norfolk racecourse on the commercialisation and development of its licensed betting shop, streaming, pay-TV and international rights from May 1 this year through to December 31, 2028.
Fakenham Racecourse will also become a shareholder in RMG, which is 100% owned by racecourses and pays all of its profits to its racecourse shareholders. The venue hosts 12 fixtures throughout the year.
“We are excited to be joining RMG and to be in partnership with many other like-minded small independent racecourses, alongside the larger independents and Jockey Club Racecourses,” Fakenham chief executive and clerk of the course, David Hunter, said.
“We have an excellent relationship with The Racing Partnership, At The Races and Sky Sports Racing which goes back many years and we are very grateful to the many successful years we have partnered with them.
