The company is now the ticketing partner of choice to a total of twenty racecourses across the UK and Ireland including The Curragh, Galway and Punchestown.

Following today’s announcement, Future Ticketing now operates a digital ticketing platform for 10 racecourses in the UK, and a further 50 Point-to-Point fixtures stretching from Sussex to Northumberland. 

Commenting about the new partnership, Bob Young, General Manager of Taunton Racecourse, said: “We had been researching the market for a while and the general consensus from the racecourses we spoke to is that Future Ticketing is bringing racecourse ticketing to a new level. We are excited about working with them as the new season gets underway.”
