Which Sportsbook Will the Arizona Cardinals Partner With?

Arizona has legalized sports betting and is in the process of finalizing regulations. National sportsbook operators are teaming up with local teams and venues in the state.

Despite this, there has not been any announcement of a major partnership between the Arizona Cardinals and a sportsbook. As Arizona prepares to launch sports betting for the upcoming NFL season, it will be crucial to monitor any developments regarding a potential agreement between the Cardinals and a sportsbook.

During months when NFL games are being played, states usually see a surge in sports betting activity and revenue. Arizona is anticipated to have a bustling NFL betting scene, thanks to the devoted fan base of the Cardinals.

BetMGM, PointsBet, and BetRivers are among the operators that have yet to establish partnerships with professional teams in Arizona.

The Arizona Coyotes and Phoenix Raceway have not yet revealed any plans for partnerships in AZ NHL betting or sportsbook collaborations, along with the Cardinals.

The MLB team Arizona Diamondbacks, NBA team Phoenix Suns, WNBA team Phoenix Mercury, and PGA Tour event in Phoenix have all made agreements with two state tribes in Arizona.

Ducey approves sports betting legislation

On April 12, the Arizona state legislature approved sports betting. Just three days later, Governor Doug Ducey signed the bill, officially legalizing sports wagering across the state.

After Governor Ducey legalized online sports betting, the Phoenix Suns wasted no time in announcing their partnership with FanDuel AZ Sportsbook. The collaboration was made official on the same day, with FanDuel being named as the Suns’ official sportsbook and daily fantasy sports partner. As part of the agreement, a new FanDuel Sportsbook will be opened inside the Suns Arena for NBA betting in Arizona.

In a press release, Jason Rowley, President & CEO of the Phoenix Suns, announced that the partnership with FanDuel represents a significant milestone for the organization and its fans. He emphasized that FanDuel’s dedication to enhancing the excitement of sports aligns perfectly with the Suns’ mission to provide thrilling sports and entertainment to engage fans at the highest level.

Mike Raffensperger, Chief Marketing Officer of FanDuel Group, shared his enthusiasm for the imminent debut of their online and retail sports betting services in Arizona. He emphasized the importance of their partnership with the Suns and how it will positively impact the state, as well as the excitement it brings to both FanDuel and Suns supporters. The upcoming launch of the upscale sportsbook at Phoenix Suns Arena marks the start of a dynamic and enduring collaboration between the two organizations.
