The Best Mate Enclosure is now sold out on Gold Cup Day, Friday, March 13.
Situated on the far side of the racecourse, it is one of three enclosures at Cheltenham Racecourse. Tickets for Gold Cup Day can still be purchased for the other two enclosures, Tattersalls and Club.
Demand for the Best Mate Enclosure has been particularly strong this year, with tickets selling out three weeks earlier than in 2014.
Ticket sales for the first three days of The Festival are also going well, with sales in hospitality boxes particularly strong.
The Panoramic, Moscow Flyer and Final Fence restaurants are sold out on every day of The Festival.
Ian Renton, Regional Director for the south west region of The Jockey Club, commented: “Ticket sales for The Festival are going really well with the Best Mate enclosure on Gold Cup Day sold out about three weeks ahead of last year.
“I would expect this to have an impact on the two other enclosures and for the sold out signs on Gold Cup Day to go out in advance.
“We have seen strong hospitality sales across all our different restaurants, at all price levels and I hope for this pattern to continue as we run into The Festival in five weeks’ time.”
Yours in sport,
