BetMGM sportsbook ready for Super Bowl weekend
BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt said of the upcoming concert:
“Entertainment is at the core of BetMGM and we’re going all out with a larger-than-life concert that will be one of the weekend’s marquee events.”
BetMGM will make history in February as “the first live sportsbook on the Big Game’s stadium campus,” Greenblatt said.
The BetMGM Sportsbook opened at State Farm Stadium this past September. At the time, Greenblatt called it “one of the most revolutionary additions an NFL stadium has seen in decades, and unlike anything (that) fans have encountered on game days.”
Jessica Kubicki, the director of marketing for YAM Properties, owners of the Westgate Entertainment District, spoke enthusiastically of the Super Bowl’s fourth occurrence in Arizona:
“The Big Game is back in our hometown of Arizona and we are thrilled to work with such a dynamic partner, BetMGM, to amplify our center’s mission, ‘where fun happens.’”
