- The Memphis Grizzlies have partnered with WynnBET on a multi-year deal.
- The partnership will be a digital-first approach.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis Grizzlies fans and bettors will have a new experience when either attending a Grizzlies game or following their social media platforms.
The team has signed a multi-year marketing partnership with WynnBET which will bring more a betting twist to not only the Grizzlies digital platforms but also to their arena, the FedExForum.
On the digital side of the partnership, there will be different media broadcasts as well as betting features on the official Memphis Grizzlies app as well. On the Grizzlies mobile app, they will offer their users an in-game Pick’em type game on different events happening in the game.
“With the importance of a digital-first approach, partnering WynnBET with our Grind City Media shows, content and features was a very organic framework for building this forward-looking partnership. We also enjoy any opportunity to create new and different spaces to experience inside FedExForum for our fans, and we love the thought of being a destination in downtown Memphis for sports fans to watch their favorite sports programming year-round,” said Jason Wexler, Grizzlies Team President.
Another aspect of the partnership will include WynnBET taking control of a space inside of FedExForum and giving visitors a legal sports betting experience. Being that Tennessee sports betting is limited to an online-only platform though, there will be no retail betting involved with this space, however, bettors can use it to catch up on other games and see certain betting trends from different games as well.
The WynnBET product made its debut on May 10 and will continue to run promotions throughout the Grizzlies’ final home games of the season where they will run promotions in which fans can win courtside seats to a game.
