Online gambling firm 888sport is sponsoring two-time UK Champion Jockey runner-up, Neil Callan, for the 2022 UK Flat season.   

Callan will carry the betting brand’s logo on his riding wear as well as provide regular updates via a blog throughout the season. 

Often referred to as the ‘Iron Man’, the sponsee will also write an 888sport-branded column for The Sun and appear on TalkSPORT2, where the operator is the official betting partner.

“I’m delighted to be partnering with a brand like 888sport for the 2022 season,” Callan said. “I’ve really enjoyed my return to the UK and have built up some good relationships with a number of trainers.

“I’m looking forward to a very busy season ahead and hope I can provide 888sport’s customers with some good insights along the way.”   

The Irish jockey spent 10 years in Hong Kong where he won £37.1m in prize money from over 4,000 rides, and he was also leading riding in Bahrain this winter.

Additionally, former jockey Barry Geraghty is a brand ambassador for 888sport and has stated that he will continue to represent the brand during the 2022/23 National Hunt season.

Kieran Spellman, VP Head of Sport at 888sport, added: “888sport is delighted to be sponsoring Neil. He enjoyed a hugely successful career in Hong Kong and we are really looking forward to working with him and supporting him on his return to take on the new generation of UK and Irish flat racing stars.”
