The company is delighted to confirm that it will return as a key sponsor of Beverley Racecourse for the duration of the 2022 racing calendar. Hull Trains branding will feature prominently around the Westwood racing track and concourse.
The partnership will launch at the Easter Race Day in April and run across 19 meetings through to the season finale which takes place in September. This season, over 100,000 spectators are expected to attend the thoroughbred horse racing venue in the East Riding of Yorkshire, where racing can be traced back as far as 300 years.
It is the latest show of support for sporting projects, following the announcement earlier this year of partnerships with Hull FC, Hull KR and London Broncos.
David Gibson, Managing Director, said: “Beverley is only a 15-minute journey from Paragon Station, and we have carried so many passengers to the racecourse for a day’s racing in our 21-year history, particular those from the West Hull area.
“As with the rugby clubs we proudly sponsor, there is a very real affinity between Beverley Racecourse and Hull Trains, our passengers and the wider East Yorkshire community, so this partnership makes sense on so many different levels.”
Chief Executive of Beverley Racecourse, Sally Iggulden, added: “Hull Trains play a crucial role in delivering our customers to East Yorkshire from all over the country. The option to travel efficiently from London has particularly been a game changer in recent years, and we know that a warm East Yorkshire welcome will be provided as soon as the train door opens. It’s an absolute pleasure to once again be partnering with Hull Trains.”
Race-goers attending events at Beverley Racecourse will be able to look out for the Hull Trains logo on advertising hoardings close to the final furlong, in addition to big screens, on race cards, and at various other sites around the ground.
