Barry Faulkner, GBGB chief executive said:


The GBGB Greyhound of the Year awards night is always a memorable occasion. The sense of excitement grows as we approach year end, as owners anticipate the inclusion of their pride and joy in the nominations for awards.


“Last year our awards were generously sponsored by BAGS, Betfred, Charles Russell Speechlys, Coral, Konica Minolta, Ladbrokes, Pinpoint Recruitment, Press Association Sport, Racing Post Greyhound TV, SIS and William Hill.


Again, sponsorship opportunities for the various awards at this year’s event are available and they offer a great opportunity for companies to showcase their brand and join us on an evening of celebration of our great sport.”
