FanDuel Group and MotorCity Casino have agreed terms that will provide the sportsbook operator with official gaming partner status with the Detroit Tigers and Detroit Red Wings, two of Detroit’s most iconic professional sports franchises. 

FanDuel Sportsbook will appear on static and digital signage at both Comerica Park and Little Caesars Arena, including the outfield wall and on dasher boards, and be featured on the Detroit Tigers and Detroit Red Wings Radio Networks, which reach fans across the state of Michigan.

In collaboration with MotorCity Casino, FanDuel Group recently launched a fully integrated, real money online gaming experience for residents and visitors to Michigan. The firm’s CEO Mike Raffensperger said: “After a very successful launch in Michigan, we are excited to continue our momentum by partnering in this way with two of the most iconic sports organizations in the country. 

“To celebrate, we are offering a $25 registration bonus for all eligible Red Wings and Tigers fans that use the code DETROIT after registering for a FanDuel Sportsbook account.*”  

According to FanDuel, this partnership with the Tigers is part of its continued strategy of aligning with Major League Baseball teams in markets where mobile gaming is permitted. The firm said that it is recognized by Major League Baseball as one of roughly 15 MLB Authorized Gaming Operators. FanDuel is also an official sports betting partner of the National Hockey League

The Tigers and Red Wings are also marketing partners with MotorCity Casino. MotorCity Casino is FanDuel Group’s sports betting and casino collaborator in Michigan, and the home of the state-of-the-art FanDuel Sportsbook at MotorCity Casino in Detroit that opened in March 2020.
