Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise the Washington Nationals has become the latest team to partner with BetMGM in a multi-year agreement.
BetMGM is a joint venture between MGM Resorts International – which is already the official gaming partner of the MLB – and Entain.
The partnership will see the opening of a BetMGM sportsbook connected to Nationals Park and the launch of a mobile app within the permitted area around the Park, as well as fan-focused campaigns and co-branding opportunities.
The sportsbook will provide a luxury viewing and sports betting experience that complements the existing experience at the MGM National Harbor Dugout Club, an eight-seat premier luxury sports box located on the field adjacent to the team dugout.
Matt Prevost, Chief Revenue Officer at BetMGM, said: “This new partnership with the Nationals is our most in-depth partnership with a team and showcases the multitude of ways we’re able to engage fans in and out of stadiums.
“We’re extremely excited to work together to create unique experiences for Nationals fans and the broader D.C. metro area during and after games.”
As the official sports betting partner of the Washington Nationals, BetMGM branding will be featured inside Nationals Park as well as on the team’s social media and digital platforms. The partnership will also create exclusive benefits for members of each partner’s loyalty program: MGM Resorts’ M life Rewards and Red Carpet Rewards.
“The Nationals are thrilled to expand our strong partnership with MGM Resorts into the sports betting realm,” Alan Gottlieb, COO of Lerner Sports Group, commented. “As our official sports betting partner, BetMGM will further enhance the greatest in-venue fan experience in Washington, DC through its state-of-the-art entertainment products and services.
“The BetMGM mobile app will enable our fans to engage with the game in new and exciting ways, while the BetMGM Sportsbook connected to Nationals Park will provide Nationals fans and the D.C. community with a first-class gathering place to celebrate their passion for sports together.”
