BetMGM and the Philadelphia 76ers announced Thursday a renewal of their strategic partnership where BetMGM will continue as an official sports betting partner of the team. The operator behind the BetMGM Pennsylvania Sportsbook and the state’s lone NBA team initially joined forces in December 2020.
The multi-year extension includes the addition of BetMGM VIP fan experiences and watch parties, exclusive in-market odds boosts, and increased courtside signage at Wells Fargo Center. Throughout the regular season, BetMGM will curate VIP fan amenities, including courtside access to pregame shootarounds and luxury seating for games. BetMGM customers in Pennsylvania and New Jersey also will have access to an exclusive 50% live odds boost token during 76ers games.
“This extension allows us to further enhance the gameday experience for fans, in the arena and at home,” BetMGM chief revenue officer Matt Prevost said in a news release. “We look forward to continuing our rewarding relationship with the 76ers this season and beyond.”
Signage touting the BetMGM PA sports betting app will be featured throughout the arena on the grandstand, videoboard, and courtside LEDs. BetMGM content will be featured in the 76ers’ social platforms and email campaigns.
“We’re joining forces again with BetMGM to promote another opportunity for fans to embrace competition, just in time for the new season,” Sixers chief revenue officer Katie O’Reilly said in the release. “We are thrilled to build on our continued success here in the Philadelphia market and offer our unique experiences for BetMGM customers and 76ers fans alike.”
