BetMGM has signed a partnership agreement with the Pittsburgh Pirates, which will see the operator actively advertise at the PNC Park and more.

The MLB team is set to promote BetMGM via its digital and social channels, which have millions of followers. The operator will also have promotional materials placed on the Pirates’ stadium in strategic marketing spots, including the left field wall and behind home plate.

“Our partnership with BetMGM is one that we are extremely proud to announce,” said David Burke, Pirates Executive Vice President of Sales and Business Development. “We are incredibly excited to partner with such a respected and innovative brand. It allows us the opportunity to provide a unique platform for our fans to engage with Pirates baseball like never before.”

Matt Prevost, chief revenue officer for BetMGM, said the operator has seen “tremendous success” since it launched in Pennsylvania last December. “Growing our presence across the state, in partnership with the Pirates, is a top priority and we look forward to providing Pittsburgh’s passionate sports fans unique promotions and benefits only available on BetMGM,” Prevost said.

BetMGM, one of the leaders in the online gaming industry in the US, is a partnership between Entain and MGM Resorts International.

Pirates are Latest in String of PA Partnerships

Since its Pennsylvania debut, BetMGM has formed several strategic partnerships with sports teams across the state.

A partnership with the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers was announced in November 2020, before BetMGM’s gaming app was even launched to players in Pennsylvania. BetMGM thus became the Steelers’ first ever gaming partner, and the deal saw the operator advertise through a series of Steelers owned channels, both live and online.

Just a few days after launching in Pennsylvania in December, BetMGM signed a separate partnership agreement with the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers, another key partnership for their growth in the Keystone State. As part of that deal, the operator signed they would launch 76ers themed promotions, create 76ers themed games, and promote their operation through the team’s marketing channels.
