Greyhound Racing Economic Impact 2014

GBGB Deloitte Report 2014

I am pleased to attach a press release and copy of the Economic Impact of British Greyhound Racing Industry 2014, prepared by Deloitte. This is the first time that a comprehensive snapshot of the industry’s economic position has been undertaken.

Greyhound Racing has long been an important product for the British and Irish off-course Betting industry, providing an exciting sport with high levels of integrity for customers to enjoy whilst also generating healthy and stable margins for bookmakers. It is paradoxical that at a time when the worldwide appeal of British Greyhound Racing has never been greater, many in the sport are struggling.

The report highlights the significance of greyhound racing to the Betting industry and, in equal measure, the importance that we work together to develop a sustainable funding mechanism for the future.
