BetMGM and the Arizona Cardinals have debuted the first sportsbook at a National Football League (NFL) stadium, ahead of the team’s 2022 regular season opener.
The BetMGM Sportsbook at State Farm Stadium is a two-story, 17,000-square-foot entertainment destination featuring state-of-the-art sports wagering amenities, concert-hosting facilities, a gourmet grille and bar and a variety of screens to watch games.
Adam Greenblatt, BetMGM CEO, said: “The BetMGM Sportsbook at State Farm Stadium is one of the most revolutionary additions an NFL stadium has seen in decades and unlike anything fans have encountered on gamedays. BetMGM shares the Arizona Cardinals’ vision in pursuing new ways to break barriers and entertain fans.”
Located on The Great Lawn, the BetMGM Sportsbook at State Farm Stadium will operate on both event and non-event days, offering guests a 265-square-foot video wall, 38 televisions and indoor-and-outdoor dining options. All of this can be found steps away from trading windows and betting kiosks placed throughout the space.
Throughout the year, the BetMGM Sportsbook will also serve as an outdoor music and comedy concert amphitheatre, hosting events for audiences gathered on The Great Lawn.
Michael Bidwill, owner of the Arizona Cardinals, said: “We are proud and thrilled to be the NFL’s first team to offer its fans this type of unprecedented amenity and innovative experience. The BetMGM Sportsbook at State Farm Stadium gives us a chance to engage current and potential fans on a year-round basis in a fun, entertaining and responsible way.”
The BetMGM Sportsbook will open to the public on Sunday, before the Cardinals’ game against the Kansas City Chiefs. The team and the sports betting and iGaming operator revealed a first look at their plans back in January.
It was announced in August that State Farm Stadium would be fitted with a retail sportsbook as part of a wide-ranging partnership between the Cardinals, BetMGM and Gila River Hotels & Casinos.
The BetMGM Sportsbook at State Farm Stadium will complement the BetMGM mobile app that launched statewide in Arizona in September.
