Star Sports English Greyhound Derby Fever
On January 30th Star Sports English Greyhound Derby Tickets and Packages went on sale, January 31st the team here are exhausted. It would appear the greyhound world has been gripped by Derby fever, we sold around 2,000 tickets across all platforms in just one day.
The excitement surrounding the 2017 English Derby is incredible, not only will the winner bank the £175,000 first-prize, they will be roared on to victory by a huge crowd.
We have drafted in extra staff, expanded our phone system and opened up digital booking to help us cope with the huge demand. We apologise to everyone who could not get through to the office on the 30th January, but hopefully this problem is now resolved.
Make sure you get your tickets for the Derby final on July 1st in advance, no tickets will be sold on the day. We expect demand will outweigh supply and this incredible event could be sold out way in advance.
