"Having recently signed a deal to become an Authorised Betting Partner, we have shown our full commitment to British racing. We're very excited about this partnership with Arena Racing Company (owners of Lingfield) and the Sprint, Middle Distance and Marathon categories give us the perfect variety of races to sit alongside our existing Flat sponsorships, including the Betway Lincoln, Betway Chester Cup and Betway Yorkshire Cup."
ARC group director of sponsorship, David Leyden Dunbar, added: "We are delighted to welcome Betway as category sponsors of the All-Weather Championships.
"We have already had a successful partnership with the company through their sponsorship of the Betway Lincoln and it is exciting to have the chance to extend this to the All-Weather Championships.
"As Authorised Betting Partners they understand the symbiotic nature of the racing and the betting industries and we are determined to continue to show the value of racing to their business through pioneering sponsorship opportunities, such as the All-Weather Championships."
