The Pittsburgh Steelers are just another sports organization getting into the betting revolution. The Steelers have a huge following in the NFL and have officially announced a partnership on Tuesday with BetMGM. This will be the first-ever sports betting partner, to be associated with the Pittsburgh Steelers organization. BetMGM's website is expected to launch later this year and once it launches it will become the official sponsor of the Pittsburgh Steelers. BetMGM is just waiting on approval from the state of Pennsylvania.
“We are excited to introduce BetMGM to Steelers Nation,” Steelers vice president of sales and marketing Ryan Huzjak said. “Not only will BetMGM be elevating some of our existing platforms, but they will be introducing new and exciting opportunities to Steelers fans. We are looking forward to kicking off this partnership.”
This partnership will allow BetMGM to have full access to the Steelers logos across social media and marketing. They will be displayed as a presenting sponsor of the "Steelers Kickoff," Pregame show and there will be commercials during Mike Tomlin's Weekly Press Conference. BetMGM Chief Revenue Officer said they're eager to launch their partnership with the Pittsburgh Steelers as they have the most passionate fan bases in all of professional sports.
"Steelers Nation is one of the most passionate fan bases in professional sports and we’re thrilled to bring the excitement of BetMGM to Steelers fans,” BetMGM chief revenue officer Matt Prevost. “We’re eager to launch BetMGM’s gaming offering in Pennsylvania and I can’t think of a better way to kick off our entry into the state than through this monumental partnership.”
