Caesars inks multi-year Cleveland Cavaliers agreement

Caesars Entertainment has inked a multi-year agreement with the Cleveland Cavaliers to make its Caesars subsidiaries official sports betting and casino partner of the team. 

Under the terms of the partnership, Caesars Sportsbook will become the official sports betting partner, along with Caesars Entertainment ornate as the official casino partner of the National Basketball Association team, the Cleveland Cavaliers. 

“We’re ready to welcome Ohio sports fans into the Caesars Sportsbook Empire, while also making history with our second sportsbook at an NBA arena,” noted Chris Holdren, Co-President of Caesars Digital.

“Building upon our already established roots with Scioto Downs in Columbus, we’re excited to announce our partnership with the Cavaliers at an exciting time in their franchise’s history. 

“As we prepare to launch sports betting in Ohio later this year, this wide-ranging partnership enables us to connect with the Cavs’ passionate and highly engaged fanbase.

“Caesars Sportsbook at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse will be a first-class venue providing an exciting atmosphere for sports betting and more.”

This partnership includes plans to open a retail sportsbook on the street level inside the Northwest Atrium area of the team’s home venue, Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, pending regulatory approvals.

Caesars Sportsbook at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse will have betting windows for cash wagering and combine custom VIP and hospitality experiences for Caesars Rewards members, along with on-site activations throughout the year. 

In addition, Caesars Sportsbook gains access to the use of official Cleveland Cavaliers logos and marks, broadcast and digital content across Cavs properties, as well as TV-visible in-game signage.

Moreover, when mobile sports betting goes live in Ohio, sports fans will be able to download the Caesars Sportsbook app to make a bet anywhere in the Buckeye State. In addition, Caesars Sportsbook will have mobile market access via the Caesars Entertainment-owned Eldorado Gaming Scioto Downs Casino in Columbus.
