BetMGM Announces Unique Deal with Borussia Dortmund
BetMGM has greed to a pioneering deal with German Soccer giants Borussia Dortmund.
In what is a first in the United States, BetMGM has signed a deal that will see them become the exclusive regional U.S. partner of Borussia Dortmund. Dortmund is one of the most historic German clubs. Hailing from the North Rhine-Westphalia region, they have won eight league championships and, in 2015, were named as the 12th richest soccer team in the world.
This is the first European soccer team BetMGM has struck a deal with, according to the company. This exclusive soccer partnership includes cross-marketing opportunities in addition to social media promotions. There will also be BetMGM sweepstakes that will award Dortmund prizes.
Matt Prevost, chief revenue officer for BetMGM, described BetMGM becoming the first U.S. sports betting operator to join forces with a German soccer club as a “major milestone.” He commented on the prestige of the club they are dealing with, stating, “who better to team up with than the legendary Borussia Dortmund.” Prevost added that U.S. interest in the Bundesliga “continues to skyrocket” and that following this deal, BetMGM customers “can engage with one of Germany’s most prestigious clubs.” Prevost confirmed that all BetMGM customers would now be able to watch all Bundesliga games through the BetMGM app.
According to the terms of the deal, BetMGM will gain rights to player images and team logos. Additionally, they will also receive team items for marketing applications. Borussia Dortmund fans are eligible to receive exclusive signup offers as well as access to co-branded content on the club’s English-language social media channel, which is @BlackYellow.
