BetMGM Partners Cincinnati Reds in Ohio
BetMGM has entered into a sponsorship agreement with the Ohio-based baseball team, Cincinnati Reds.
Under the terms of the multi-year deal, BetMGM will become the official sports betting sponsor of the baseball club and will have its signage displayed at Great American Ball Park, the home ground of the Cincinnati Reds. The baseball team fans will also benefit from several exclusive offers, including on-field access for batting practice.
Today’s announcement marks the beginning of our plans to create the most entertaining and dynamic sports betting experiences in Ohio. Through our relationships with the Reds and MGM Northfield Park, we look forward to bringing unique BetMGM content to Ohio’s passionate sports fans.
The partnership will also see BetMGM open a sportsbook at Great American Ball Park, making it the operator’s second sportsbook at a Major League Baseball stadium. The gambling firm opened its first MLB stadium sportsbook at National Park in Washington, DC, earlier this year.
With sports gaming coming to Ohio, the Reds sought to bring the highest quality operator to our ballpark for those fans who choose to participate in sports gaming. BetMGM is renowned for their expertise in entertainment and sports gaming, and we believe their brand best fits our high customer standards and will also help draw visitors to our city.
The sponsorship comes at a time when Ohio is gearing up to launch its legalized sports betting market on January 1, 2023. Last December, Ohio’s state House and Senate approved House Bill 29, a bill that lays the guidelines for legalized sports betting in the jurisdiction.
Last month, BetMGM partnered with Arizona Cardinals to open a retail sportsbook at the NFL's State Farm Stadium.
