MGM Resorts International is Major League Soccer’s first Official Gaming Partner and Roar Digital is league’s Official Sports Betting Partner.
MGM Resorts International has become Major League Soccer’s first Official Gaming Partner, while Roar Digital (Roar), the joint MGM-GVC venture, has been named the league’s Official Sports Betting Partner.
Since PASPA was declared unconstitutional back in May 2018 and sports betting has begun to be legalised in various states, MGM has emerged as one of the main players in gambling sports sponsorships. Already the operator has made deals with the NBA, NHL and MLB, and individual teams like the Boston Red Sox and New York Jets.
Commenting on the partnership MLS Commissioner, Don Garber, said:
“Major League Soccer is proud to partner with MGM Resorts to bring existing and new fans close to our sport in innovative and immersive ways,”
While MGM Resorts Chairman and CEO, Jim Murren, added:
“Major League Soccer offers some of the most exciting sports action in the business, and we couldn’t be more excited to partner with the league as their official gaming partner,”
And, Roar Digital CEO, Adam Greenblatt, explained:
“This is a fantastic opportunity for Roar Digital and our customers… MLS is one of the fastest growing professional leagues in the world and has rapidly established a passionate fanbase throughout the United States.”
