About us

Arena Racing Company was created in 2012, and has been a racing industry pioneer, developing new race series such as the All-Weather Championships and the all-ladies Silk Series. Our racing business has grown with the acquisition of racecourses and is the UK’s largest racecourse group.  Our greyhound stadia and our media business are flourishing through the control of media rights and our partnerships with The Racing Partnership, At The Races and Sky Sports Racing. Although we're a relatively young company we have a vast heritage dating back to 1614.  As well as racing we also host live events entertaining large crowds with big name acts.  

We offer a challenging and rewarding working environment with great opportunities to progress and develop.  We also love to support the local communities
