RMG to distribute Meydan racing rights

Racecourse Media Group, the holding company responsible for a range of media and data rights involving 34 of the UK’s premier racecourses, has agreed a deal to distribute Dubai-based Meydan Group’s international broadcast rights.

The agreement, which covers up to 20 fixtures per year, includes the showpiece Dubai World Cup on the last Saturday every March as well as Dubai Racing Club events at Meydan Racecourse.

RMG already has the production rights for the supply and operation of audiovisual equipment for racing at Meydan.

RMG chief executive Richard FitzGerald said: “As RMG is owned by 34 British racecourses, it is another illustration of how strong the ties are between Dubai and British racing and we look forward to successfully exploring further synergies and opportunities together.”
