Professional American football team Arizona Cardinals joined leading sports betting and iGaming operator BetMGM for the launch of the first sportsbook at a National Football League (NFL) stadium. 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.
Located on The Great Lawn, the BetMGM Sportsbook at State Farm Stadium will operate on both event and non-event days, offering guests a massive 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 user-friendly, over 25 betting kiosks conveniently placed throughout the space. Moreover, during the year, the BetMGM Sportsbook at State Farm Stadium will serve as an outdoor music and comedy concert amphitheater, hosting events for audiences gathered on The Great Lawn.
This Sportsbook -which complements the BetMGM mobile app that launched statewide in Arizona in 2021- will open to the public Sunday, Sept. 11th at 9 a.m. before the Cardinals start the 2022 regular season against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Adam Greenblatt, CEO at BetMGM, stated: “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.”
As for Michael Bidwill, Cardinals owner, he 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.”
