“There is a tremendous bond between our organization and bet365. With nearly 90 million customers registered worldwide, bet365 is one of the world’s leaders in online gambling and will provide our fans a trusted source to complement our organization’s success on and off the field.”
The partnership will be seen for the first time at Guards Fest on Saturday 21 January at Huntington Convention Center, with the bet365 lounge available for Guards fans aged 21 and over, with exclusive bet boosts and prize giveaways throughout the day.
“We can’t wait to engage with Guards fans at Guards Fest,” added a bet365 spokesperson. “The Guardians are an elite franchise, with a passionate and loyal fanbase, and we’re excited to create fan-focused activations that give back to the faithful Cleveland baseball fans.”
Baugh added: “We look forward to launching our partnership with bet365 at our upcoming Guards Fest on January 21. This will provide our fans a great introduction to bet365 and give a glimpse of the many activations and entertainment opportunities available beginning this season.”
