MRC Endorse Seven Deal

Tuesday, 16th June 2015

The Melbourne Racing Club yesterday agreed to provide its media rights to Racing Victoria to allow an exclusive free to air media rights deal to be signed with Seven West Media, leading the industry in endorsing a dedicated free to air channel for the first time ever. Mike Symons, Chairman of the Melbourne Racing Club, welcomed the move as significant for both the MRC and broader Victorian thoroughbred racing industry. "The Melbourne Racing Club has always maintained that our racing should be available for viewing by as many customers and potential customers as possible, across all platforms, both domestically and internationally" he said. "We strongly believe the showcasing of our racing and dedicated coverage will stimulate further growth of the Victoria Thoroughbred Racing Industry, ultimately benefiting all participants." The Melbourne Racing Club remain optimistic that Victorian racing will continue to be shown on Sky 1 (519) via pay TV and digital channels, and look forward to Racing Victoria and Sky reaching an agreement on this in the very near future.
