PointsBet seals Detroit Red Wings betting partnership
The Detroit Red Wings have entered into a strategic multi-year partnership with PointsBet, a premier global sportsbook operator and provider of a market-leading sports wagering app.
The partnership, designed to enhance fan engagement and game-day excitement, includes the rebranding of Sports & Social Detroit at Little Caesars Arena to the PointsBet Sports Bar. Expected to be operational in 2021, the PointsBet Sports Bar will offer a full-service food & beverage menu, high-definition televisions, live betting odds, special guests, unique programing, VIP access and fun gaming promotions.
“Our fans will enjoy the lively atmosphere of the PointsBet Sports Bar and the energy this partnership will bring to the game-day experience in and around Little Caesars Arena,” said Chris Granger, Group President, Sports & Entertainment, Ilitch Holdings, Inc. “We are proud to deepen our relationship with PointsBet and we look forward to creating dynamic experiences for our fans.”
The partnership also features television broadcast-visible virtual signage just inside the blue lines, as well as LED PointsBet signage and branding throughout Little Caesars Arena during Red Wings home games. PointsBet will also have a sponsored presence on the Red Wings’ digital platforms, the Detroit Red Wings Radio Network, be integrated into The District Detroit mobile app and be regularly featured on The Word on Woodward, a twice-weekly live streaming show that airs on the Red Wings and Tigers channels.
PointsBet was named the official gaming partner for the Detroit Tigers last July.
“We are thrilled to extend our relationship with the Ilitch organization and announce this partnership with the Detroit Red Wings, a very proud and storied NHL franchise with an extremely passionate fanbase,” said Johnny Aitken, CEO of PointsBet USA.
