Batavia Downs Offers Gift For Fans, Re-Ups Warm-ups

Western Regional OTB and Batavia Downs Casino are continuing their support of the FC Buffalo’s athletes, as the businesses have re-signed as corporate partners and the official providers of warm-up tops for our players, but perhaps even cooler they are offering some free fun for our fans on Friday, March 29.

“Beginning at 7 p.m. on March 29, our fans, as long as they are wearing somthing FC Buffalo, will be able to register at the desk of Batavia Downs for a $15 free play, as well as a special gift,” said FC Buffalo co-owner and financial director Ray Siminski (NEED SOME FCB GEAR? HEAD HERE). “Can’t release what the gift is, but for soccer fans it’s quite fitting.”

The FC Buffalo crest will again adorn the chest of the yellow game day warm-up shirts, which will be worn by all players before the game and by the bench players during the game. The Batavia Downs and WROTB logos will be on the back of the climate-fit tops.

“Batavia Downs Casino and Western Regional OTB’s commitment and support of local athletics has helped cultivate the resurgence in interest in minor league sports for our area. As someone who grew up around harness racing, I couldn’t be more proud of our affiliation and look forward to its mutual benefits,” Siminski said.

“To gain the support of marketing director Ryan Hasenaur of Batavia Downs and Western Region OTB is a big step for us, seeing the work he has done in making the aforementioned places entertainment destinations.”

There are a ton of contests and sweepstakes to check out from our new sponsors here. Make sure to check out their Facebook and Twitter pages to tell them thank you for supporting us!

From the Batavia Downs web site:

“Batavia Downs is a standard bred racetrack owned and operated by Western Regional Off-Track Betting Corporation. Western OTB is a public benefit corporation in the State of New York. 

Batavia Downs is the oldest lighted harness track in North America. Additionally, it is the first racetrack to be operated by an Off-Track Betting Corporation. Racetracks have operated OTBs but Batavia Downs is the first track to be run by an OTB. 

The track boasts a half-mile oval with a Euro style rail and a new mutual board in the infield. Horsemen have long admired the track as one with excellent turns that do not punish the trotters and pacers running the mile event on this stonedust surface.”
