BetMGM and the Arizona Cardinals have released initial images of a BetMGM Sportsbook scheduled to open on the State Farm Stadium campus in time for the 2022 football season.
Construction has begun on the two-story sports and entertainment building that will operate on both event and non-event days. Once opened, it will be the first sportsbook located at an NFL stadium.
The sportsbook is part of the partnership which BetMGM agreed to with the Cardinals in August last year.
BetMGM CEO, Adam Greenblatt, commented: “The Arizona Cardinals and BetMGM are both committed to enhancing the gameday experience for fans in new and creative ways. The BetMGM Sportsbook at State Farm Stadium will be one of the most unique and innovative additions to a venue that the sports and entertainment industry has ever seen.”
Located on the north side of The Great Lawn, the 16,800-square-feet BetMGM Sportsbook at State Farm Stadium will be a combination of a sportsbook and a sports bar.
With a capacity of 500, the sportsbook will have dual entrances from both sides of The Great Lawn, a 265-square-foot video wall and 38 TVs, gameday parking options, as well as both indoor and outdoor dining options. Sports fans will be able to place wagers at trading windows or utilize more than 25 betting kiosks placed throughout the space.
Cardinals owner, Michael Bidwill, added: “Since the launch of our partnership with BetMGM last August, the response has been incredible. When this sportsbook opens next season, it will provide an opportunity to engage and entertain our fans in a way that is unprecedented.”
The sportsbook will also complement the BetMGM mobile app that launched in Arizona in September 2021.
