“This is a great partnership that will give Bally Bet and our other Bally's Interactive brands terrific visibility in New York," said Adi Dhandhania, chief operating officer of Bally's Interactive North America, the digital and sports betting division of Bally's Corporation. “The Yankees' history as a franchise and their popularity as a global brand speaks for itself.”
New York Yankees senior vice president of partnerships Michael Tusiani added: “We are excited to begin this partnership with Bally's. We hope that their branding in Yankee Stadium along with their in-stadium customer engagement will greatly strengthen Bally's overall gaming presence in New York.”
In addition to the New York Yankees, Bally's has official sports team partnerships with the NHL's Nashville Predators, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury, and the NFL's Cleveland Browns.
