Maryland sports betting fans will benefit the most from this partnership. In addition to exclusive promotions on the BetMGM app, there will also be a new exclusive hospitality suite made in the M&T Bank Stadium.
“When we began the process of carefully identifying sports betting and digital gaming partners, one of our top priorities was finding unique ways for Ravens fans to further engage with the team,” said Kevin Rochlitz, Ravens Chief Sales Officer. “We are excited to partner with BetMGM and look forward to the specialized entertainment experience the company will provide for our fans.”
The partnership will see exclusive sponsored material on the BetMGM betting app and across the Baltimore Ravens digital and social platforms.
The BetMGM signage and branding will be seen within the M&T Bank Stadium. The BetMGM app will display the Ravens’ official marks and promote the team’s matchups all season.
“The Ravens are an incredible organization with a rich history, and we’re proud to have BetMGM as the team’s first official partner in the gaming space,” said Matt Prevost, BetMGM Chief Revenue Officer “We look forward to offering Ravens fans new ways to engage with their favorite football team on our market-leading platforms.”
Maryland approved legal sports betting in November 2020 when residents voted in favor of creating a local market. The framework for the market was signed off by Governor Larry Hogan on Tuesday which included provisions for local sports stadiums to offer sportsbooks.
But sports betting in Maryland has yet to officially launch.
While the hospitality suite will be in the stadium, there will be other places and ways to bet on sports. Bettors will be able to place action at the stadium itself or through mobile apps.
