Caesars Entertainment has provided further information on its upcoming Chase Field sportsbook, which will be made possible by an exclusive sports betting and daily fantasy deal signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks in May.
The casino entertainment company has unveiled several renderings of the 20,000-square-foot, two-story venue, which will have two floors of sports betting, a full-service bar and VIP club, and wall-to-wall televisions. The facility is expected to open in early 2022.
While fans will not be able to use it while attending a Diamondbacks game, they will be able to use the Caesars Sportsbook mobile app to place bets. The space will be open all year, not only on game days, and will operate on a flexible schedule to accommodate special sporting events.
Premier sports betting and entertainment destination
Derrick Hall, Diamondbacks president and CEO said: “The Caesars Sportsbook at Chase Field will be the premier sports betting and entertainment destination in downtown Phoenix.
“Diamondbacks fans, Arizona residents, and out-of-state visitors, whether they are sports bettors or not, should look forward to this state-of-the-art, year-round location that will feature a first-class dining, betting and hospitality experience – all while taking in their favourite sporting event or watching their favourite team. This sportsbook will transform the sports viewing experience in Arizona.”
Legalised sports betting
When sports betting is legalised in California on September 9, fans will be able to place bets at Chase Field’s ticket windows 21-25, making it the first MLB stadium where fans can place an in-person wager.
Bets can also be placed at five betting kiosks being constructed on the north side of the plaza in the interim, leading up to the formal launch of the retail location.
Arizonans can now download the Caesars Sportsbook app, register, and deposit dollars to take advantage of promos in advance of the opening of sports betting on August 28.
Bring to life brand vision
Eric Hession, co-president of Caesars Digital said: “Caesars Sportsbook at Chase Field will bring to life the vision of our brand by celebrating the Caesars promise of treating everyone like royalty.
“These renderings provide a taste of what this incredible new venue will offer, but there’s so much more we can’t wait to show Arizona customers when the space officially opens. Sports bettor or not, we’re hoping fans will visit to enjoy an unbeatable experience.”
The Arizona Diamondbacks’ official corporate partner, Caesars Entertainment, has a multi-year arrangement with Major League Baseball as a licenced gambling operator.
