April 7, 2022
The New York Mets and Caesars Sportsbook are officially partners in bringing the sports betting excitement to baseball fans and members alike. Ahead of the beginning of the new season of Major League Baseball on Wednesday, April 7, the Mets have announced the multi-year partnership they established with Caesars Entertainment.
That means that the famous online betting brand Caesar Sportsbook is to be the official betting partner of the Mets, and its platform will start to be in service for bettors to place bets on the MLB Opening Day.
For the record, the New York Mets and Caesars Entertainment partnership come three months after the state of New York legalized mobile sports betting, namely in January 2022. “New York is a key state for us following the successful launch of our Caesars Sportsbook app in January,” the co-president of Caesars Digital, Chris Holdren, stated in a press release.
Not only the renowned Caesars Sportsbook will the Caesars-Mets partnership provide to members and baseball fans who are excited to do sports betting. Other amenities will also come along, which include an exclusive sportsbook lounge that is planned to be opened in the Mets’ home stadium, Citi Field, at Metro Grille.
“In addition, this partnership features plans to open a new sportsbook lounge at Citi Field, Caesars Sportsbook at the Metro Grille,” said Caesars and the Mets' official statement.
VIP experiences for Caesars Sportsbook members, Mets fans
The sportsbook lounge space is said to be 13,000 square feet wide, and the visitors of the Mets’ home base will spot the promised betting spot on the Excelsior Level of the Citi Field. According to the press release, the lounge will feature a multi-tiered dining room and a terrace with outdoor seating overlooking the left side of the field. And also, it will feature a massive scale and complete access to the Caesar Sportsbook application.
Moreover, the facility will exclusively grant a variety of VIP experiences and hospitality assets for the members of Caesars Rewards, which has been famously claimed as one of the best loyalty programs in the industry of iGaming. Furthermore, the partnership will also include official Mets logos and marks, TV-visible in-game signage, and broadcast and digital content across Mets' properties for Caesars Sportsbook.
"The Mets' fanbase is one of the most loyal in baseball and this partnership offers us the chance to treat those passionate fans like Caesars. We look forward to opening our space at Citi Field during an exciting time for the franchise," said Chris Holdren.
The venue itself is reported to be opened sometime during the running of the 2022 season of Major League Baseball. And with the extended venue, the New York Mets will be another professional sports team, among others on a long list, to have that type of space in the home stadiums.
Moreover, the establishment of Citi Field’s sportsbook lounge is reportedly one of the biggest agreements between a sportsbook and an MLB team. And, it is also one of the biggest changes ever happened to the Mets’ home stadium in many years.
