GBGB has confirmed that it has not been informed of any intention to temporarily halt greyhound racing because of a tightening of Covid restrictions.

GBGB Managing Director Mark Bird said:

“I have seen the comments being made on social media regarding the apparent pausing of elite sports by the government. There appears to be no substance to these assertions and certainly not from government. We remain in close contact with DCMS as to any changes in government advice.”
