Great news for some of Yorkshire’s sporting events

Bookmakers Betway has signed up to continue its sporting sponsorships within the region.

An Agreement has been signed with World Snooker to become title sponsors of the 2015 UK Championships which will again be played at the Barbican in York later on this year.

Betway also sponsored this year’s flat racing curtain raiser at Doncaster, the Lincoln Handicap, and added two major races at the Knavesmire to its sponsorship resume this term; the Yorkshire Cup in May and the Great Volitgeur, during the Welcome to Yorkshire Ebor Festival in August.

It’s always encouraging to see bookmakers putting something back into sporting events, which effectively form the backbone of their turnover. The fact that these are major sporting events in Yorkshire is great news for the region.
