On August 1st, tickets for the 2013 Grand National at Aintree Racecourse will go on sale and mark the beginning of the countdown to the most eagerly anticipated event in the sporting calendar.
Hospitality in the form of restaurant dining and private boxes will be amongst the first packages to be made available for sale for the 2013 event, together with Season Tickets, 2-day and 3-day badges.
Two weeks later, from Wednesday, August 15, all tickets and badges, including all seated enclosures will go on-sale from 9am via the internet, www.aintree.co.uk and by telephone the following day. The racecourse is currently finalising its packages, which will be available to view ahead of on-sale on the racecourse’s website from the end of July.
With record crowds over 154,000 attending the three day Grand National meeting in 2012, make sure you get your tickets early as the 2013 renewal is bound to be just as successful.
This year, on track, racegoers witnessed a thrilling Grand National, with grey, Neptune Collonges beating Sunnyhill Boy to mark the first ever photo finish in the race. Neptune Collonges became only the third grey to have won the race, breaking the 51 year drought as well as giving champion trainer Paul Nicholls his first ever Grand National win.
Commenting ahead of on-sale, Emma Owen, Marketing & PR Manager for Aintree Racecourse said: “Although we’ve finished our racing season for the summer and don’t race again until October, it’s a very busy time at the racecourse for the team, who are putting together the many packages and offerings which will make a day out at the 2013 John Smith’s Grand National all the more special. By going on-sale early, racegoers can choose the ticket of their choice and feel safe in the knowledge their place is secured for the biggest event in the 2013 calendar.”
