A SPORTS venue is to launch a new ticket concept for next year’s horse racing season.

Goodwood Racecourse will be offering an exclusive season ticket, which will provide unlimited access to its Gordon Enclosure.

The ticket will allow racegoers to use the facilities in the enclosure for all 19 days of racing, which will include the Glorious Goodwood festival Valid for the year, each ticket costs £175.

These and other individual enclosure tickets for horse racing fixtures in 2013 go on sale from Saturday.

Next year’s racing calendar begins on May 4 and will include the three-day May Festival, the Glorious Goodwood festival in July and the Three Friday Nights series, which mixes racing and top DJs.

Further details of individual meetings will be announced over the coming months. Tickets will be available for the Three Friday Nights events from March 1 once the music acts have been confirmed.

Everyone purchasing tickets for next season before December 15 will be entered into a free prize draw with the chance to win annual membership of the Richmond Enclosure for two.

Tickets can be bought in person at the Goodwood Ticket Office, by logging on to goodwood.com/horseracing or by calling 01243 755055.
