Future Ticketing, an Irish owned global provider of cloud ticketing software for events and venues, was today announced as a new sponsor at the upcoming Shannon Airport Christmas Racing Festival at Limerick Racecourse. The new sponsorship deal will see Future Ticketing take title sponsorship of the www.futureticketing.ie Maiden Hurdle which will be run as third race on St. Stephen’s Day, the opening day of the four day Festival.


The Willie Mullins-trained Battleford, runner up in the 2016 Cheltenham Champion Bumper leads the entries for the €12,500 prize fund and will be aiming to get back on track for the 2017 Cheltenham Festival after a disappointing outing last time at Navan.


Announcing the sponsorship, Liam Holton, CEO of Future Ticketing, said, “We are delighted to get involved with sponsorship at Limerick Racecourse. This is our first venture into race sponsorship at Future Ticketing.  We have a particular passion for horse racing and we already work with a number of the leading commercial racecourses in Ireland including Punchestown, Galway, Listowel and Naas.”


Welcoming the sponsorship Conor O’ Neill, General Manager of Limerick Racecourse, added, “We began working with Future Ticketing as our ticketing software partner last year and they have done a wonderful job here on enhancing our online sales. The upcoming Shannon Airport Christmas Racing Festival looks set to be the best yet with some great racing and lots of excitement on and off the course.”
