Cheltenham Festival Gold Cup tickets sold out

Gold Cup Day, the pinnacle of The Festival 2017, has completely sold out in all enclosures – with limited tickets remaining for the three alternative days at Cheltenham Racecourse.

Gold Cup Day, the fourth and final day of The Festival, has sold out in all enclosures at Cheltenham Racecourse in 2017, two weeks earlier than last year.

Badge and ticket sales for Gold Cup Day, taking place on Friday 17 March 2017, have been extremely strong in 2017, with Club, Tattersalls and Best Mate enclosures all booked out for the anticipated race meet, and only a limited amount of hospitality remaining.

Meanwhile, there is still availability for the first three days, spanning Champion Day, Ladies Day and St Patrick’s Thursday.

Speaking about the ticket sales, Ian Renton, regional director for the south west region of The Jockey Club said: ‘All three enclosures on Gold Cup Day are sold out and this has happened significantly earlier than in 2016.

‘We have seen strong demand for badges and tickets across all four days of The Festival, not just Gold Cup Day, and look forward to welcoming racegoers in March.’
