In parallel with the launch of this service, CyberAgent will open “Keirin Channel” in “AbemaTV,” an Internet TV station. “Keirin Channel” is aimed at conveying how enjoyable cycle races are to young generations who have been unfamiliar with them as well as existing fans, and special programs for broadcasting Keirin races live and those focused on midnight Keirin races will be produced and aired. It is possible to buy betting tickets while watching programs.
“WinTicket” will start with Keirin races, and expand online betting services for other public races, including Auto Race.
