BOYLESPORTS SPONSORS RTÃ‰ SPORTS COVERAGE
Expands horse race portfolio to include coverage
BoyleSports has added RTÃ‰ Sport' s coverage of horse racing across television, radio, online and mobile to its sponsorship portfolio, a deal reportedly costing the Irish independent bookmaker £ 1 Million.
BoyleSports is already heavily invested in Irish horse racing sponsoring the Irish Grand National and the Irish Greyhound Derby.
The two-year deal will see Boylesports prominently featured in all RTÃ‰ racing coverage on television, radio and online.
Further, RTÃ‰ and Boylesports will develop integrations between live television and mobile applications to support sports fans across multiple platforms.
Irish racing remains on terrestrial free-to-air television and Boylesports has secured a powerful association with Irish Racing across all of RTÃ‰'s market-leading platforms, said Dermot Rigley, commercial manager for RTÃ‰ Sport.
This partnership is a great endorsement of RTÃ‰ Sport's output and their powerful audience reach and we're delighted to welcome Boylesports on board.
John Boyle, chief executive for BoyleSports added: We already sponsor many of Ireland's most significant racing fixtures but to continue to be successful those fixtures must benefit from broadcast coverage.
That is why this partnership is important, not only for RTÃ‰ and Boylesports, but for the future of Irish racing. This deal cements our place as Ireland's number one bookmaker in terms of monetary contributions towards Irish racing.
