SIS secures two-year deal for Saudi Cup rights

We have agreed a two-year deal to distribute live pictures and data for the full Saudi Arabian racing schedule, including the principal event of the season The Saudi Cup.

The full Saudi Arabian racing schedule for the next two years will be made available to our customers worldwide via our retail and online services, including our 24/7 Live Betting Channels – an end-to-end solution which provides operators with profitable short-form content throughout the day with a betting event every three minutes.

As part of the agreement, we will broadcast The Saudi Cup on February 20 – the world’s most valuable horse race thanks to its $20 million prize fund and the $10 million cheque handed out to the winner. The Saudi Cup is the highlight of the prestigious two-day meeting at the King Abdulaziz Racecourse, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia across February 19-20.

The announcement further enhances our market-leading portfolio of international racing, which also includes events from the Czech Republic, Dubai, Germany, Hungary, Latin America, Mauritius, and Singapore among others, as well as the UK and Ireland.
