Greyhound Races

The sole Greyhound racing facility in Asia is at the Canidrome, which is located in the northern part of the city. Today, it is considered one of the largest and most unique in the world.

Canidrome's uniqueness is its 500-yard oval track, two grand stands, several private boxes, a VIP lounge, and a coffee shop. Races are held four times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays with over 300 dogs racing each day. Races are broadcast over radio and TV from studios that are located within the complex.

Entry to the Canidrome is 2 patacas and to the Members' stand is 5 patacas.

Horse Racing

The Macau Jockey Club, situated on Taipa Island, is one of the most technologically advanced racecourses in the Asian Region. Over 900 fine thoroughbreds, imported from countries such as United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, U.S.A., and France, are trained here. There are free shuttle buses that take horseracing fans from Hotel Lisboa and the pier to the racecourse on racing days. An air-conditioned grand stand provides a comfortable view for visitors who are served a choice of Chinese and European cuisine.

Race meetings are held every weekend during the racing season. Occasionally, the meetings are held on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, as well as during major festivals such as the New Year, Chinese New Year, and Easter. For further details, check the Race Meeting Schedule.


Visitors to Macau can take part in a multitude of sporting activities, as well as witness in action leading figures in soccer, volleyball, athletics, and other sports.
