The NFL tram partners with Harrah’s in anticipation of sporta gambling expansion
Another partnership in the sports gambling industry is about to happen and, even though nothing has been mentioned about gambling intentions, fans are wondering what other opportunities might bring. The Carolina Panthers recently announced a new big deal with a casino in North Carolina as Harrah’s Cherokee Casino and the Panthers are cooking a deal only for naming rights, but but this certainly shows potential for more after sports gambling has recently become legal in the state.
Both the Panthers and Harrah’s are seen as financial engines to the area in which they are located. Combining these two strong forces can inspire something more than just using their names. With this deal, the casino now will sponsor the Panthers to have their names posted proudly at the Champions Village in the after-party taking place when the fifth quarter ends. For the Panthers, it also represents having new deals and prizes and right now is having all fans talking about it.
It seems that conversations regarding sports gambling are already taking place, since it became legal on the state earlier this year; however, only on tribal lands such as the Cherokee Indian Reservation located at the far western part of the state. This could represent the first attempt to introducing something new and that can bring benefits especially when it comes to competition. If the green light is given by the authorities in South Carolina, there is a possibility of having a new casino at the Panthers’ training camp. Currently, the terms of this deal haven’t been disclosed, but it seems like this deal could potentially worth millions for both sides.
