Racecourse Badge Scheme for Owners

The Racecourse Badge Scheme for Owners grants access to over 1,300 fixtures throughout the year.

We strongly recommend that you pre-book your tickets as part of the enhanced approach and download your new digital PASScard for ease of access. 

ROA members should login into the RCA's PASS system where you will find a full list of qualifying fixtures to apply for. 

Please note that on PASS you can pre-book your badges from entry stage, which is six-days before the fixture.  To check whether a fixture later in the year will be participating, click on the appropriate month-by-month dropdown list located in the Members Area.

Please note that a recent decision by The Jockey Club has resulted in the allocation of badges through the RBSO at all Jockey Club Racecourse fixtures to be reduced from two badges per ROA member to one badge per member.

To book your tickets, please login to the RCA PASS system and confirm your attendance no later than 4pm the day before the race meeting.

If you have lost or not received your login details to that site please call the PASS helpdesk on 01933 270333.  They will be able to issue you with your PASS ID number (which is different to your ROA membership number) and email you a password setup link.

These login details can also be used to obtain a digital PASS card (downloaded from your phone’s app store, search for RCA-Pass) which can be used on the day to collect your ticket(s) from the Owners & Trainers entrance.
