The Professional Fighters League has rolled-out a partnership with BetMGM that designates the sports betting and digital gaming entertainment entity as its US authorised gaming operator.
This will see fans across the country be able to wager on fight lines on BetMGM beginning with PFL 4, which airs on Thursday 10 June in primetime on ESPN networks and streaming platforms.
As part of the partnership, the MGM Resorts International and Entain joint venture will also have rights to PFL logos and marks as well as VIP events, and will be offering BetMGM users unique related promotions.
Matt Prevost, chief revenue officer of BetMGM, said of the group’s latest sporting link-up: “The upcoming PFL slate is phenomenal, and we look forward to offering fans exciting opportunities to get in on the action with unique PFL promotions on BetMGM.”
The partnership comes as the PFL continues to accelerate its global expansion, with sports enthusiasts across more than 160 countries around the world able to tune in to PFL 4 and witness the action in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
On June 10, fighters across the featherweight and lightweight divisions will make their final push of the regular season to earn a spot in the PFL Playoffs, facing win-or-go home scenarios.
Former world champion Anthony Pettis will look to bounce back from an upset defeat in his PFL debut and earn one of the division’s four playoff spots when he takes on undefeated Alexander Martinez.
“We’re excited to partner with BetMGM to evolve our premium betting experiences for the millions of passionate sports fans across the country ahead of PFL 4 on June 10,” stated Peter Murray, PFL chief executive officer.
“Our fighters are facing win-or-go-home matchups in the remaining regular season events and expanding our sports betting offerings delivers another thrilling component to our league.”
