Caesars Rewards members, including those who download the Caesars Sportsbook mobile app, will access the facility, which will undergo a complete renovation before the start of the Knicks and Rangers seasons in 2022-23.

Once completed, the space will include exclusive programming, including special guest appearances, giveaways, and improved activations.

“We’re happy to welcome Caesars Sportsbook – a famous brand in the sports betting industry – to the MSG Sports and MSG Entertainment families,” said Ron Skotarczak, MSG Entertainment’s executive vice president of marketing partnerships.
