Nationals, BetMGM partner on multi-year deal

The Washington Nationals are hoping to hit a home run with their multi-year, exclusive partnership with BetMGM.

Per the Nationals’ release on Monday, a BetMGM Sportsbook will open in Nationals Park and the launch of a mobile app will be permitted in the area around the stadium.

“The Nationals are thrilled to expand our strong partnership with MGM Resorts into the sports betting realm,” said Alan Gottlieb, Chief Operating Officer of Lerner Sports Group. “As our Official Sports Betting Partner, BetMGM will further enhance the greatest in-venue fan experience in Washington, D.C. through its state-of-the-art entertainment products and services.

“The BetMGM mobile app will enable our fans to engage with the game in new and exciting ways, while the BetMGM Sportsbook connected to Nationals Park will provide Nationals fans and the D.C. community with a first-class gathering place to celebrate their passion for sports together.”

The new Sportsbook will not be accessible by fans in attendance at a Nationals game. Fans, however, will be able to place bets via BetMGM’s mobile app.

BetMGM branding will be featured inside Nationals Park as well as on the team’s social media and digital platforms.

“This new partnership with the Nationals is our most in-depth partnership with a team and showcases the multitude of ways we’re able to engage fans in and out of stadiums,” said Matt Prevost, BetMGM chief revenue officer. “We’re extremely excited to work together to create unique experiences for Nationals fans and the broader D.C. metro area during and after games.”
