The multi-year sponsorship agreement will see BetMGM become the Tigers’ official gaming partner, a team that is playing in the American League Central division.

The Tigers will integrate the Casino and Sportsbook brand across the team’s digital and in-field assets, including branding rights on scoreboards throughout the sides of Comerica Park Arena. 

The MLB team will also be working together with BetMGM in several fan-focused promotions, integrated social media content, and more.

The Tigers will also promote BetMGM on various digital and social platforms, including the MLB Ballpark App. BetMGM signage will also get advertised at Tigers’ stadium, including the out-of-town scoreboard and the speed pitch LED board.
