Hove Greyhound Stadium is set to become one of the few British sporting venues permitted to operate.

The government has again clamped down on social interaction as the coronavirus crises deepens.

So from Monday (23 March) the Nevill Road stadium will race on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons, Thursday evenings, Friday mornings and Sundays.

The Sunday schedule is due to be announced soon.

    Once again this disgusting sport shows that they don’t care about the lives of anyone.

    Dogs are used, abused and killed everyday in the racing industry. Anyone who participates in it obviously doesn’t care about others lives, especially at this time!

    Is it really in the public’s best interest to still be encouraging gambling when people are losing their jobs? Apart from this I am completely against cruel ‘sports’ of which the Greyhound Racing Industry is most definitely.
