BetMGM will feature LPGA odds in BetMGM’s diverse betting menu, alongside the PGA Tour, the European Tour and other global leagues and sporting events. Additionally, BetMGM will have rights to use the Official Tour Partner logo in connection with the advertising and promotion of their sports betting products and services.
In fact, LPGA announced a multi-year agreement with BetMGM, a leading sports betting and digital gaming company, to become an Official Betting Operator and Partner of the LPGA Tour. Through its partnership with MGM Resorts, BetMGM has access to existing sponsor relationships with several leading LPGA Tour Members.
Matt Prevost, BetMGM chief revenue officer, said: "We look forward to working with the LPGA and engaging with its fanbase through our market-leading products. BetMGM’s advanced betting technology provides a user-friendly experience for LPGA fans and a myriad of betting options to choose from."
Lance Evans, MGM Resorts' senior vice president for sports and sponsorships, added: "MGM Resorts’ commitment to golf is unparalleled and is further strengthened by our new partnership with the LPGA Tour. The LPGA features some of the world’s greatest athletes, several of whom are MGM Resorts golf ambassadors.
In collaboration with BetMGM, we look forward to creating engaging content and experiences for sports fans and our guests." In a statement, LPGA explained the terms of the partnership: "As a leading sports and entertainment company and already a supporter of women’s golf, BetMGM is uniquely positioned to join the LPGA family as an Official Betting Operator.
Sports betting and digital gaming are key elements of the future of sports, and BetMGM is on the forefront of both opportunities. We are happy to partner with them as we look to provide more opportunities for our fans to interact with the LPGA and learn about our incredible athletes."
Rory McIlroy doesn't approve the new Premier Golf League
"I am definitely against it and this story is a perfect reminder of what happened in the world of football. This is just an economic project that aims to make the players as much money as possible.
If there is someone who has this goal, they can choose this path easily," said Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy thus reiterates his no to the Premier Golf League. "I think this project is really interesting and certainly deserves to be evaluated carefully"
This is the position of Phil Mickelson who in the past had already winked at the Premier Golf League which aims to take the limelight from 2022. The opinion of Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy is diametrically opposed. "I don't know how this story will end - the statements of Thomas, world number 2 - but my intention is to go back to being the best player, win as many majors as possible and do historic things on the PGA Tour"
These are the positions of some stars about nascent Premier Golf League (PGL) which, through a Saudi fund, would be ready to put 1 billion dollars to convince many big names to leave the traditional circuits to embark on a new adventure.
The Premier Golf League (PGL), with the support of a Saudi fund, returns to undermine the safety of the most important men's green circuits. Immediate reaction of the PGA Tour which, as has already happened in football with FIFA and Uefa, imposes a hard line.
"Anyone who decides to enter this circuit will be suspended immediately and will risk the definitive expulsion from the top American tour." This is the position expressed by Jay Monahan, commissioner of the PGA Tour.
The Premier Golf League would have put $ 1 billion on the table to convince 40-50 players to embark on a new adventure. Which covers 18 events around the world with mind-boggling bags. The goal is to take the stage as early as 2022.
