Baseball is back and having recently launched their online poker platform in Michigan the timing was perfect for BetMGM to announce that they are now an ‘Official Gaming Operator’ of the Detroit Tigers baseball team. BetMGM is the sports betting and interactive gaming division of MGM Resorts operated in partnership with UK based gaming technology company Entain PLC.
The partnership will see BetMGM branding on scoreboards throughout the Tigers’ Comerica Park home field along with integrated social media content, promotions, etc. The BetMGM branding will be featured in the MLB Ballpark app and will be featured on the out-of-town scoreboard and the pitch speed LED board at Comerica Park among other places.
Peter Kent, Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships for the Detroit Tigers, is pleased to have BetMGM on board:
“We’re excited to expand our relationship with BetMGM to feature the Detroit Tigers and Comerica Park. Our fans will enjoy the enhancements this partnership provides to their experience, both at the ballpark and in rooting on the Tigers from home.”
BetMGM’s Chief Revenue Officer Matt Prevost offered this comment:
“From day one, a main priority for us in Michigan was to develop deep relationships with its beloved sports teams, and we are excited to expand on that today with our partnership with the Tigers. We look forward to engaging with the Tigers fan base and offering best-in-class promotions and perks only available on BetMGM.”
BetMGM offers sports betting and online gaming through several brands including BetMGM, Borgata Casino, Party Casino and Party Poker.
