Work continues at Oxford Greyhound Stadium to get the facilities to a high standard prior to the track’s grand reopening. Oxford held its last meeting back in 2012 and the site has sat in limbo ever since. Thankfully, greyhound racing entrepreneur Kevin Boothby got involved and purchased a ten year lease from site owners Galliard Homes. Sites such as https://www.gamblingmentor.org/ will likely have advice for punters heading to Oxford Stadium on opening night!
Lisa Hust, commercial operations manager at Oxford Stadium, said: “After many months of hard work, the interior development of Oxford Stadium is starting to take shape.
“Our executive suites have been restored to their former glory and are ready to host guests on race nights, in addition to events and conferences.
“Following almost a decade of neglect, our suites have been modernised and will provide visitors with the ultimate trackside hospitality and viewing experience.
“The demand we have received for bookings has been overwhelming and is testament to the interest and buzz the reopening of Oxford Stadium has generated locally.
“Six months ago, Oxford Stadium resembled an overgrown field. Although parts of the interior remained in remarkably good condition, most areas were derelict and required serious renovation.
“The hard work of everyone on site in the past few months is now bringing the venue to life again.”
There have been various false dawns over the years where Oxford dog track is concerned, but due to the hard work of everyone involved with its redevelopment, things appear to be on course for the stadium to reopen very soon. With a huge demand already for tickets and tables, greyhound racing fans look set to have another exciting option when it comes to meetings to attend in the south of the country.
