BetMGM, a sports betting and iGaming leader, and Charlotte Motor Speedway, the iconic motorsports and entertainment venue, announced a new market access agreement enabling BetMGM to bring its online sports betting platform to North Carolina once legalized sports betting launches.
“We have been eagerly awaiting legal, safe, regulated online sports betting in North Carolina, a state with more than 10 million people and one of the most vibrant sports environments in the country. BetMGM’s partnership with Charlotte Motor Speedway meets a great demand for entertainment from North Carolinians. Together we will deliver a premier and responsible gaming product that benefits many state agencies,” BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt said.
In addition to supporting many of North Carolina’s publicly funded colleges, tax revenues from sports betting will also support a major event fund, allowing the state to recruit national sports and entertainment events to drive additional tourism, job creation, and economic impact.
“BetMGM has established itself as a signature source for sports betting with partnerships in every major league sport and with venues across the country. With Charlotte Motor Speedway’s history of innovation, we wanted to move forward into this new era of sports entertainment with a progressive sportsbook. This partnership with BetMGM will bring sports fans new ways to enjoy their favorite events while expanding North Carolina’s tax base, supporting colleges and facilitating recruitment of major events for the future,” Greg Walter, Executive VP and General Manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway, said.
