BOSTON, March 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- BetMGM, a leading sports betting and iGaming operator, announced today it is now an Official Sports Betting Partner of the Boston Red Sox. This marks BetMGM's first relationship with a Massachusetts sports team and the first sports betting partnership for the Red Sox.

The company was also selected by Fenway Sports Group as the naming rights partner of The MGM Music Hall at Fenway, which opened in September 2022.

Chris Kelley, President & COO, Northeast Group, MGM Resorts, said, "As host of the annual Red Sox Winter weekend, MGM Springfield has become a destination for New England baseball fans.
