The NFL’s Baltimore Ravens have named BetMGM as their first Official Gaming Partner. The relationship is cemented in a multi-year deal that will place BetMGM’s name on signage in M&T Bank Stadium, as well as on digital and social media assets operated by the team.
“We are excited to partner with BetMGM and look forward to the specialized entertainment experience the company will provide for our fans,” Ravens Chief Sales Officer Kevin Rochlitz said in a prepared statement.
Last November, Maryland voters approved a referendum to legalize sports betting for both retail and mobile venues in the state. Currently, the details of how legalized sports betting will be regulated and implemented are being fleshed out by the Maryland legislative body.
Headquartered in New Jersey, BetMGM is one of the leading gambling and entertainment companies in the United States, operating popular brands such as BetMGM, Borgata Casino, and Party Casino. They were founded in 2018 from a partnership between MGM Resorts International and Entain plc. MGM also operates a casino at National Harbour in Oxon Hill, Maryland, making BetMGM an obvious choice for one of the first sports betting apps to launch in Maryland.
