“We are excited to work with bet365 to expand the Tour’s sports betting initiatives outside of North America,” said Scott Warfield, Vice President of Gaming at the PGA Tour.
“bet365 was the first operator to integrate the Tour’s official in-play betting product and they are poised for tremendous growth being on the forefront of in-play sports betting in golf. The Tour continues to look for opportunities to innovate in new areas with a goal of engaging with fans.”
As an official betting partner of the PGA Tour, bet365 will have rights to use PGA Tour marks, as well as rights to advertise within Tour media and partner platforms.
