Caesars Entertainment Inc has announced a multi-year partnership with the New York Mets to make Caesars Sportsbook the official sports betting partner of the Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise.
The deal features VIP experiences and hospitality assets for Caesars Rewards members, as well as plans to open a new sportsbook lounge at Citi Field, Caesars Sportsbook at the Metro Grille, during the 2022 MLB season.
Located on the Excelsior Level at Citi Field, the 13,000 square foot space will bring together the Caesars Sportsbook app with a multi-tiered dining room and outdoor patio seating complete with panoramic views overlooking left field.
Caesars was one of the first operators to go live with its sportsbook on the launch day of the online sports betting market in New York earlier this year in January.
As part of the agreement, Caesars will also have access to official Mets logos and marks, TV-visible in-game signage, and broadcast and digital content across Mets’ properties.
Chris Holdren, Co-President of Caesars Digital, commented: “New York is a key state for us following the successful launch of our Caesars Sportsbook app in January.
“The Mets’ fanbase is one of the most loyal in baseball and this partnership offers us the chance to treat those passionate fans like Caesars. We look forward to opening our space at Citi Field during an exciting time for the franchise.”
Last month, Caesars Sportsbook, a division of Caesars Entertainment Inc, announced a partnership with the New York Racing Association’s online wagering platform, NYRA Bets, to launch Caesars Racebook, a new horse racing account wagering app.
