What is the Racing League?

Racing League is a competition between 12 teams, who will compete over 6 consecutive weeks on Thursday evenings to win the League. This is not traditional racing - create your fantasy team, win competitions and prizes through the Racing League app, meet and interact with the teams, watch and try esports and listen to live music in between races and into the night. Which team are you on?

A new type of racing festival…

On 29th July, Newcastle Racecourse will transform into a day-night festival of food, music, esports and entertainment for all the family. Doors will open at 14.00 for a day filled with great eats, exhibitions from our teams and associated brands and memorable experiences.

Live music announced!

We’re thrilled to announce that Amy Lauren will be headlining each Racing League event alongside an inspiring line-up, curated by Amy, of some of the finest DJs and producers local to Newcastle.

Food & Drink - think international

We aim to bring an international flavour, provided by local suppliers and producers. The food festival will carry on into the night, with street-food and light bites from all over the world. There will also be drinks and refreshment pop-ups in addition to the traditional racecourse bars.

Exhibitions - esports and more

We will be hosting a number of guest exhibitions over the 6 events. A gaming demonstration by some of the most talented gamers in the UK, will provide a chance for the fans to take them on at their own game! We will also have displays from the latest content creators in sport and tech, as well as a chance to check out the latest technology in horse racing.

What will be the look and feel of a Racing League event?

The Racing League will have a festival feel. We will be using the inner section of the track, called the infield, to host Big Betty the esports truck, a music and presentation stage and the food festival picnic area. Team zones and brand activation spaces will also be situated on the infield.
