Jockey Club Racecourses have announced the installation of bespoke free public Wi-Fi across its 15 racecourses.

Free Wi-Fi is now available across all public areas at all 15 racecourse venues, including grandstands, bars, restaurants, hospitality areas, Owners & Trainers areas, parade rings and concourses. The Wi-Fi also provides use for The Jockey Club’s own business services and for its partners, such as access control, point of sale functionality and the Britbet pool betting service launching in July 2018.

The Jockey Club’s business services arm, Jockey Club Services also offers other UK sports organisations its expertise in designing and delivering multi-venue Wi-Fi systems through consultancy and central services that provide guest portal, web filtering, customer data aggregation, reporting and insight.

The Jockey Club’s racecourses are: Aintree, Carlisle, Cheltenham, Epsom Downs, Exeter, Haydock Park, Huntingdon, Kempton Park, Market Rasen, Newmarket July Course, Newmarket Rowley Mile, Nottingham, Sandown Park, Warwick and Wincanton.

Paul Fisher, chief executive of Jockey Club Racecourses, said: “It’s essential we continue to invest in enhancing the experience we offer to our customers. Racing is a fantastic day out and we are very clear that free Wi-Fi is a customer expectation, so I am very pleased we have completed what amounts to Europe’s largest multi-site system rollout.

“This also creates a range of commercial opportunities, including for partners, engagement through our app, customers sharing their experience on social media and for our forthcoming Britbet pool betting service.”

Alan Stewart-Brown, regional vice president of Europe, Middle East and Africa at Xirrus, one of the technology providers involved in The Jockey Club’s Wi-Fi project said: “Xirrus are proud to be part of what is undoubtedly the largest multi-venue, high-density Wi-Fi installation in Europe.”
