Newcomers to the UK sports betting scene, BetMGM, has partnered with resurgent English Premier League football club, the Saudi-owned Newcastle United FC.
As Official Club Partner for the 2023/24 season, BetMGM branding will be displayed across the club’s St. James’ Park stadium. And the BetMGM branding will be visible to both those in live attendance at matches and those watching over international streaming broadcasts.
BetMGM is the British-facing brand of global gaming giant, MGM Resorts International, and is operated by MGM-owned LeoVegas and powered by Kambi’s sportsbook technology.
Peter Silverstone, CCO at Newcastle United, says: “We are delighted to be introducing BetMGM as an official club partner.
“BetMGM already has a significant presence in the city of Newcastle, with the company’s UK office here, so it is a business that understands the football club, its fanbase and the region.”
Sam Behar, Director of BetMGM UK, adds: “Newcastle United’s re-entry into the world’s elite this season is a golden moment for the football club and its incredible fans.
“We are proud that the club has selected BetMGM as one of its betting partners for the upcoming season, and with our launch in the UK, it is fantastic to have Newcastle United as part of our stable of Premier League partner clubs.”
