DraftKings Sign Deal with PGA for Arizona Market Debut
The brands will together launch a new retail sportsbook at the TPC Scottsdale PGA Tour venue in Arizona.
As DraftKings continue to gather pace across America, it has announced a new deal that will secure market access in Arizona.
According to an official press release, DraftKings has strengthened its relationship with the PGA Tour. The brands will together launch a new retail sportsbook at the TPC Scottsdale PGA Tour venue in Arizona.
This comes after much progress in the efforts to legalise sports betting in the state. Just this week, Arizona’s Senate passed House Bill 2772, which will permit residents and visitors in the state to wager on sports at tribal casinos and sites owned by major league sports teams and professional sports organisations.
“When DraftKings became the first official betting operator of the PGA Tour last summer, a number of possibilities opened up to innovate together,” DraftKings’ chief business officer Ezra Kucharz said.
“This momentous effort to pursue a first-of-its-kind sportsbook with the PGA Tour is a testament to the vision of both organizations that we believe will ultimately benefit Arizona sports fans who want to legally bet on sports.”
PGA Tour vice president of media and gaming Norb Gambuzza added:
"The PGA Tour commends the State of Arizona and Governor Ducey for their forward-thinking approach to legal sports betting.
“We are thrilled to work with DraftKings – along with the City of Scottsdale and the Thunderbirds – to explore a one-of-a-kind sportsbook experience at TPC Scottsdale and the world-class Waste Management Phoenix Open.”
