The National Football League’s (NFL) Las Vegas Riders, have signed online gaming partner BetMGM as their Official Sports Betting partner. The partnership is an extension of the existing multi-year partnership which was agreed upon in January, with parent company MGM Resorts International and the Raiders.
BetMGM is a joint venture between casino operator MGM Resorts International and sports betting and gambling company GVC Holdings. As per the deal, BetMGM will provide educational information to the Raiders fans.
BetMGM is also aligned with the NFL’s Detroit Lions and Denver Broncos. ESPN has announced that Raiders inaugural game in Las Vegas, against the New Orleans Saints on September 21, will be a Monday Night Football MegaCast.
The Raiders have already announced that there will be no fans in the stadium due to the ongoing pandemic. The game will be broadcasted simultaneously on ESPN, ABC and the Spanish-language ESPN Deportes, while ESPN2 will air a different presentation featuring conversation with stars from the NFL, and across the sport, entertainment, and music industries to keep the fans engaged and motivated.
As part of the presentation, rock group The Killers will perform at halftime from the Caesars Palace rooftop, marking MNF’s 50th birthday.
