Score Media and Gaming Inc has confirmed the signing today of a multi-year agreement that sees it appointed as an authorized gaming operator of Major League Baseball (MLB). 

Under the terms of the deal, the firm will be afforded immediate access to official MLB data, league marks, and logos for its mobile sports betting app, theScore Bet. Also as part of the agreement, the two organisations will collaborate on best-in-class practices to protect the integrity of MLB games.

John Levy, Founder and CEO of theScore, welcomed the tie-up, saying: “We’re thrilled to work with MLB, helping bring our fans an even deeper experience as we begin our multi-state expansion of theScore Bet.

“We know our fans are eager to watch and bet on America’s pastime, and we’ll be ready to bring them a best-in-class integrated media and betting offering when play resumes and for seasons to come.”

Kenny Gersh, MLB Executive Vice President, Gaming & New Business Ventures, responded: “Working with theScore is another important step in offering baseball fans a variety of unique gaming options to continually engage with our sport.

“theScore is an innovative company that shares our vision for developing fandom with new, creative gaming opportunities on a variety of platforms.”

Currently taking wagers in New Jersey and set to launch in both Indiana and Colorado in the coming months, subject to receiving all licenses and approvals, theScore Bet has been uniquely integrated with theScore’s sports news and scores app to deliver a holistic media and gaming experience.
