BoyleSports Show Interest in Buying William Hill Betting Shops
When Caesars purchased the William Hill brand earlier in the year, it made its plans to sell all non-US operations clear.
BoyleSports, one of the UK’s most respected betting organisations, has shown interest in purchasing William Hill’s betting shops from new owners, Caesars Entertainment.
When Caesars purchased the William Hill brand earlier in the year, it made its plans to sell all non-US operations clear. However, it now plans to relinquish itself of William Hill’s 1,400 UK betting shops by the end of June. According to analysts, this deal would be worth around £2.9BN.
BoyleSports currently has 21 shops across the UK, along with 45 others dotted throughout Northern Ireland.
A BoyleSports spokesperson said:
“BoyleSports would certainly be interested in acquiring some or all of William Hill’s UK shops, or indeed any other opportunity that makes sense for our business.
“We have made no secret of our ambition to be one of the principal operators on the UK high street and believe that our retail and digital offerings represents a best in class, safe, and enjoyable proposition for the betting public.
“We already have 21 shops in the UK which, along with our 45 shops in Northern Ireland and our recently upgraded online betting site, gives us a sizeable foothold in the UK retail and online markets. The sale of the William Hill estate presents us with a rare opportunity to achieve the retail scale we have been targeting.”
