The ARB was formed in 1999 when the Birmingham and Midland BPA disbanded and formed a new association. It then became a founder member of the Federation of Racecourse Bookmakers together with the NAB and RBA.
Our aim is to represent our members through the FRB and AGT in the best and fairest way possible.
