Bidwill commented, “We wanted to make sure that we aligned with world-class partners and we did when we teamed up with BetMGM. Everything quickly came together and we decided we wanted to do something that had never been done before which is to put a sportsbook in the place where the best tailgating is happening in the United States and that’s The Great Lawn right outside the front door.”

Hornbuckle added, “For us at MGM Resorts, it’s about a unique opportunity. The idea for us is the connectivity between sports betting, engagement and getting people to enjoy themselves.”
Ducey concluded, “I look forward to a great season from the Cardinals. This new offering is an exciting way to get more fans engaged and it’s going to continue to rise to new heights. I believe that the BetMGM Sportsbook will perfectly fit in with the Red Sea, and with that, let’s cut this ribbon.”
