THE Darwin Turf Club are pleased to announce that tickets to the 2022 Great Northern Darwin Cup Carnival will go on sale at lunch time today (Monday, January 24, 2022).

The Territory’s biggest social and sporting event sees over 40,000 racegoers in attendance each year for all the colour, fashion and excitement of thoroughbred racing in the Top End, culminating in the Great Northern Darwin Cup on Monday August 1, 2022.

Darwin Turf Club chief executive officer Brad Morgan said that with borders open, interest from interstate guests has reached unprecedented levels for this time of year.

“It is very exciting to see such unprecedented interest from interstate, and we have been fielding upwards of 20 calls a day with people enquiring about the Great Northern Darwin Cup Carnival, a testament to what a great event this is for the Territory,” he said.

“Events including the Bridge Toyota Ladies Day Function, Ladbrokes Let’s Talk Racing Luncheon, Sportsbet Gala Ball and the Great Northern Darwin Cup will again be popular amongst punters, so I urge people to not hesitate in buying their tickets as we are expecting another complete sell-out.”

Mr Morgan also added that new inclusions from last year will only be enhanced further, giving even more patrons further opportunities to enjoy Darwin Cup Day.

“After the successful addition of The Paddock last year, capacity will double in 2022 and feature DJ entertainment, lounges, food trucks and market umbrellas during the day, before turning into the ideal after party location for all patrons immediately after the running of the Cup.”

Mr Morgan also highlighted that an exciting addition to this years Carnival is the announcement of Moshtix as the preferred ticketing partner for this year’s Great Northern Darwin Cup Carnival.

“The Darwin Turf Club is excited to be partnering with Moshtix, who will be crucial in delivering a full calendar of events, and ensuring a greater customer experience when purchasing tickets.”

Day 1 of the 2022 carnival commences with the running of the Darwin Guineas race day on July 2 and culminates with the Great Northern Darwin Cup to be held on Monday, August 1.
