Chase Field in downtown Phoenix.
After Arizona approved the expansion of sports betting in the state last month, it didn’t take long for the Diamondbacks to get into the game. A Vegas-like sportsbook is coming to Chase Field.
In a 10-year-deal believed to be worth up to $70 million, the Diamondbacks will grant Caesars Entertainment exclusive rights to sports betting and fantasy sports that will allow construction of a sportsbook and bar adjacent to the stadium’s plaza, a site formerly known as Game 7 Grill.
Fans will be allowed to place their bets in person or through a mobile app, though Major League Baseball rules currently do not allow for wagering inside the stadium itself. It’s expected to open by the end of the year.
Reno-based Caesars Entertainment also finalized a multiyear agreement with baseball to become the authorized gaming operator for the major leagues.
FanDuel previously announced it would open a year-round sportsbook at Phoenix Suns Arena, and Draft Kings said it would partner with the PGA Tour for one at the TPC Scottsdale.
