MGM Resorts Hosting Honda NHL® All-Star Weekend festivities in Las Vegas February 4-5

LAS VEGAS – February 3, 2022 – MGM Resorts International, BetMGM, a leading sports betting and digital gaming operator, and the National Hockey League (NHL) today announced a multi-year extension of their groundbreaking partnership. The news comes as MGM Resorts, which operates T-Mobile Arena, prepares to host Honda NHL® All-Star Weekend festivities in Las Vegas Feb. 4-5. Several special events will take place at MGM Resorts’ iconic properties along the Las Vegas Strip as well.

As an official sports betting and resort partner of the NHL, BetMGM and MGM Resorts will continue using NHL brands to enhance the experience for both customers and guests. BetMGM and MGM Resorts will continue to be integrated into the NHL’s jewel events, with camera-visible signage and on-site activation opportunities. Additionally, BetMGM and MGM Resorts will maintain the ability to reach hockey fans through communications to subscribers from the NHL’s fan database.

Both brands leverage NHL media channels, including BetMGM odds integration within the NHL Network’s “Showcase Odds” segment and MGM Resorts sponsoring a look at the NHL® All-Star “First Timers” across NHL social platforms. MGM Resorts became the NHL’s first official sports betting partner in 2018.

“We are thrilled to renew our partnership with MGM Resorts and BetMGM. Our extension enables us to continue to work together on delivering innovative content programming to connect with our passionate fans. We look forward to continuing to grow our relationship with MGM Resorts and BetMGM and collaborate on new opportunities for fan engagement.”
