CITY A.M. has agreed a deal with Epsom Downs Racecourse to become the official newspaper of the Investec Derby Festival, which takes place on Friday 3 and Saturday 4 June at Epsom Downs Racecourse.
The agreement will see City A.M. produce a Derby Special Edition as its first ever Saturday newspaper. The 20-page publication will be distributed along key rail routes to the 125,000 race goers travelling to Epsom Downs for Investec Derby Day.
Lawson Muncaster, City A.M. Managing Director, said: “To team up with the Investec Derby Festival – the premium race in Britain which attracts the biggest attended audience of any UK sporting event – sees us produce our first ever Saturday edition and is the most exciting partnership City A.M. has been involved in.”
Rupert Trevelyan, Epsom Downs Racecourse Managing Director, added: “We are extremely pleased to welcome City A.M. as the official newspaper of the Investec Derby Festival. City A.M.’s ability to target City-based professionals was instrumental in our decision to forge this partnership as it provides us a powerful communication platform for Epsom Downs Racecourse.”
City A.M. will cover all 13 of the Investec Derby trial races in its Punter section, culminating with a dedicated three-page preview of the Investec Derby Festival on 3 June.
