Arenacross Tour fans will be able to up the excitement stakes in the New Year by having a flutter via a swipe-to-bet mobile app after promoter ASL signed a deal with Pitstop Betting.
The Pitstop Betting platform is delivered through an exclusive motorsports-dedicated app that’s downloadable through the App Store and Google Play. AX fans won’t be restricted to just betting on Pro and Pro Lites race results and will be able to place wagers on categories such as best British rider, who’ll crash when and where and who’ll grab the holeshot.
Gamblers must be over the age of 18 and the maximum bet placed will be limited to £50 with a minimum of just £1.
“Pitstop is solely focused on the motorsport market and so Arenacross is a great addition to our current portfolio,” said PSB’s CEO Simon Vumbaca. “I am excited for Pitstop to be involved with the AX community and to introduce it to our unique betting experience.
“Our app provides users with the perfect platform from which to engage with motorsport, offering in-depth statistical and news tools making it even easier for fans to put their knowledge to the test as they play – and win – in all formats of Arenacross.”
ASL boss Matt Bates is delighted with the deal. “It is great to have secured what is a landmark partnership – not just within Arenacross but motocross in the UK – with Pitstop Betting becoming the first-ever betting partner of Arenacross,” he said. “Arenacross is the perfect event for people to have fun and quickfire flutters on their favourite riders.
“Playing with Arenacross should only be fun and enhance the overall show experience. It’s been a long-term ambition of mine to see people being able to legally bet at Arenacross, I think it will only add to the already incredible atmosphere.”
Arenacross Tour tickets are on sale now with prices from just £12 for a child on Friday evenings and substantial discounts available for two-night tickets. Arena doors will open at 6pm with the opening ceremony getting under way at 7.30pm.
