SIS and the Irish Greyhound Board have confirmed the addition of a new fixture on Saturday mornings to be broadcast from Tralee stadium.
SIS and the board will add an additional fixture to be broadcast on Saturday mornings from Tralee greyhound stadium and made available to UK and Irish betting shops and online operators via SIS.
SIS endeavour to offer premium content and streaming provision across all bookmaker channels and the new deal will complement this, thanks to the help of the IGB.
The first Tralee fixture, comprising of eight races with later races dovetailing SIS’s exisiting coverage from Crayford and Romford, will be broadcast on March 4th 2017 starting at 9.11am.
Paul Witten, Commercial Director at SIS said: “We have added a second fixture from Tralee to our retail and online programs, following customer demand for greater coverage at suitable times and we see the Saturday morning slot as one of those times.
“SIS endeavour to offer premium content and streaming provision across all bookmaker channels and the new deal will complement this, thanks to the help of the IGB.”
Joe Lewins at IGB said: “This gives us a further opportunity to showcase our racing product to the SIS audience and to build on the success of the three meetings currently being broadcast throughout Ireland and the UK.”
SIS already own exclusive rights to broadcast three fixtures in Ireland – Youghal on Monday evenings, Mullingar on Sunday afternoons and a second fixture at Tralee on Tuesday evenings – and the extra meeting will add to SIS’ exclusive coverage across the UK and Ireland including horse racing and greyhounds on the company’s leading streaming platform, SIS Stream.
