The Arizona Cardinals and BetMGM have teamed up to open the first ever Sportsbook at an NFL stadium. The Sportsbook officially launched today. It will open on Sunday in time for the Cardinals season opener when they host the Kansas City Chiefs.
The BetMGM Sportsbook is located at the designated area for tailgate space, known as The Great Lawn. According to the Cardinals, the sports betting facility is two stories. It also holds a 265 square foot video wall, 38 televisions and both outdoor and indoor dining.
The site will be open from 9 a.m- 11 p.m . on Monday- Friday and from 7 a.m- 11 p.m on Saturday and Sunday.
While this is the first Sportsbook in an NFL stadium, it’s not the first in the sports world and even in Arizona. FanDuel and Caesars Sportsbook opened facilities at Footprint Center and Chase Field, home of the Phoenix Suns and Arizona Diamondbacks.
This new Sportsbook is just another example of how popular sports betting has become.
The Cardinals and BetMGM already released a giveaway for two lucky fans to attend Sunday’s game against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.
