PointsBet has agreed to a multi-year agreement with the University of Maryland Athletics Org.
This will be the 1st time a Big Ten Conference team has partnered with a sports betting company.
Investment in the University of Maryland athletics program broadens PointsBet’s potential to affect local communities & the larger DMV community, connecting PointsBet with alumni who are still active in their old institution. Sports gambling training and responsible gambling are important components of their long-term plan, as is having a visible influence on the areas in which they operate. The partnership between PointsBet & Maryland Sports Properties would involve campus activations & in-game elements for supporters mostly around Maryland’s Xfinity Center & Capital One Field in Maryland Stadium. In addition, strategic responsibility and gambling addiction education for Maryland employees and students is included in the agreement. According to the release, the collaboration would also feature a charitable component.
Maryland was thrilled to confirm a collaboration with PointsBet via Maryland Sports Properties & Playfly Sports in order to create awareness and educate their student-athletes and Campus community about safe gambling. Retail sports gambling in Maryland is anticipated to be online this week, possibly tomorrow (December 9th) or Friday (December 10th), at 3 locations: MGM National Harbor, Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, and Live! Casino & Hotel.
Hollywood Casino in Perryville and Ocean Downs in Berlin both have licenses and are expected to open in the coming weeks or months. Online sports betting is expected to follow, despite the fact that the state has a lot on its plate.
