2020 Irish Greyhound Derby streaming rights issued to SIS

By Hayley Grammer

Sports Information Services (SIS), a multi-channel supplier of betting products, has for the first time secured streaming rights for the 2020 Irish Greyhound Derby across both online and retail channels.

Expanding its greyhound offering, live pictures and data of all six rounds of the prestigious competition, taking place at Shelbourne Park in Dublin from 14 August to 19 September, will be available through the supplier’s 24/7 Live Betting Channels.

By securing the rights for both online and retail streaming, SIS strengthens its footing in greyhound racing across the UK and Ireland.

“The Irish Greyhound Derby is an important date in the sport’s calendar, and we’re thrilled that we’ll now be streaming all six rounds of the event for retail outlets and online,” said SIS Greyhound operations manager Gordon Bissett.

“Since live greyhound racing returned to the fold, engagement levels have been extremely strong with margins high. Our partners appreciated the quick turnaround in SIS offering a full schedule and the addition of all races from the 2020 Irish Greyhound Derby will be highly beneficial to them.”

Irish Greyhound Board head of wagering Mandy Lucas added: “This deal is fantastic news for the Irish Greyhound Derby and will ensure that more bettors than ever before will have access to streams of this premier greyhound racing competition. SIS has a fabulous reputation for the way in which they deliver greyhound racing pictures to bookmakers, and we’re delighted to be working with them again in this latest venture.”
