NFLPA and BetMGM Join Forces in Landmark Partnership Deal

As anticipation builds for next year’s Super Bowl in Las Vegas, the excitement is already off to a great start with the announcement of a partnership between BetMGM Colorado, one of Colorado’s many licensed sportsbooks, and the NFL Players Association. The two organizations are joining forces to provide fans with unforgettable experiences that feature current and retired NFL players.

To kick things off, this dynamic relationship was launched in the days before the NFL Super Bowl took place in Las Vegas last week. It promises to be an incredible season of professional football leading up to a record-breaking Super Bowl event in Las Vegas. From official partnerships to fan spectacles, now is the time to get excited about 2023’s biggest season of football!

An Array of Experiences Tailored Specifically for the Event

MGM Resorts is certainly making a statement announcing its commitment to the upcoming Super Bowl in Detroit and the 2024 NFL Draft. Lance Evans, Senior Vice President of Sports & Sponsorships, made clear that MGM Resorts will bring their full support to these events.

“Partnering with the NFLPA is another indication of our strong commitment to the great sport of football across the US. As NFL’s premier events come to Las Vegas, we look forward to welcoming players and creating a world-class experience for MGM Rewards members.”

The additional efforts they are prepared to provide will undoubtedly enhance the impact of these already notable days in Detroit. It’s both exciting and reassuring that MGM Resorts is making sure these monumental occasions will be ones to remember. Their involvement helps ensure that Detroit fans can look forward to a truly iconic experience next year and beyond.

Colorado Sportsbooks are Booming, Experiencing Growth and Success

Since legalizing sports betting in 2019, Colorado fans have been taking advantage of the additional opportunity to bet on local teams such as the Denver Broncos and Nuggets of the NBA, as well as their own beloved Avalanche from the NHL. With a plethora of online sportsbooks in Colorado like Caesars, BetMGM, FanDuel, DraftKings, and PointsBet all vying for a spot in this booming market, it’s no surprise that Colorado residents have been spending heavily on sports betting.

In fact, according to the Colorado Department of Revenue’s latest report from December 2020, an impressive $518 million was spent on various wagers. Basketball took the lion’s share at nearly $147 million while pro football came in second with a respectable $137 million. However, when you factor in college football’s $38 million worth of bets placed by eager Coloradans, football becomes the number one sport to place a wager on in the state.
