Gateway Casinos & Entertainment has been confirmed as the Official National Land-Based Casino Partner of the NFL in Canada. The firm’s signature MATCH Eatery & Public House will be the exclusive presenting sponsor of the NFL Fantasy App. Gateway will have the right to use NFL trademarks in Canada to promote its properties and activate around key NFL events including the NFL Draft, Pro Bowl, and Super Bowl.
Beginning with the NFL Fantasy Draft, this multi-year sponsorship is focused on Gateway offering unique NFL experiences for its customers throughout its casino and food and beverage properties.
From interactive game day décor, to unique opportunities to meet NFL players and alumni, and exclusive promotions; football fans will be treated to a fully immersive NFL experience from the moment they enter the venue.
“We are thrilled to partner with the NFL in Canada as their first Canadian Land-Based Casino Partner,” said Carrie Kormos, Chief Marketing & Communications Officer. “We know there are millions of football fans across Canada and to be able to offer exclusive, unique experiences to them at our properties is very exciting. This comes at such an exciting time as the NFL is celebrating 100 years of football this season and we look forward to celebrating with them as a new partner in Canada.”
“NFL Canada is truly proud to be working with Gateway to collaborate and help accelerate its business in Canada,” said David Thomson, the managing director of NFL Canada. “Like the NFL and our players, Gateway sets itself apart in the market through unparalleled teamwork and commitment to excellence, which makes our new partnership so powerful in Canada.”
