J-E-T-S Take The Lead . . . In NFL Gaming Deal, Marketing With MGM Resorts

By Barry Janoff

October 31, 2018: The New York Jets have held a lead at the end of games only three times through the first half of the NFL season.

But the Jets are taking the lead in one area.

Calling it a “first-of-its-kind” partnership, the team has signed a multi-year deal naming MGM Resorts International the official gaming partner of the Jets.

According to the Jets, the alliance “marks the most comprehensive and integrated gaming partnership in the NFL to date, promoting the global entertainment company's best in class casino resorts as well as Play MGM's online gaming platforms and mobile apps to millions of fans.”

The Jets are the third NFL team with an official sports betting-related deal.

In September, the Dallas Cowboys became the first NFL team with a casino deal, signing a multi-year pact naming WinStar World Casino and Resort as the official casino of the team.

On Oct. 19, Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, a joint venture of Caesars Entertainment and JACK Entertainment, signed an official partnership with the Baltimore Ravens.

Earlier this week, the NHL has signed a multi-year pact naming MGM Resorts International as the first official sports betting partner of the league.

In July, the NBA signed a deal naming MGM Resorts International as the official casino partner for the NBA and the WNBA.

"We are proud to partner with an iconic brand like MGM Resorts and its renowned properties to bring a world-class gaming and entertainment experience to our fans," Jets president Neil Glat said via the team.

"This unique partnership also enables us to further engage our fans in the mobile and digital world."

The team said that a full integrated mix of Jets marketing assets would help promote MGM Resorts to people, including signage in MetLife Stadium, ads on Jets TV shows and game day radio broadcasts and social and digital sponsorship.

MGM Resorts said it would also provide a wide range of hospitality for Jets season ticket holders and Jets Rewards members, including premium entertainment experiences and luxury hotel rooms at its Borgata property in Atlantic City, and other MGM Resorts properties in the U.S.

In addition to its designation as the official gaming partner of the Jets, MGM Resorts will sponsor and receive access to the Jets 360 Production Studio at Atlantic Health Jets Training Center.

The Play MGM Studio will be the year-round multi-media home for Jets content across Jets 360 TV, digital, and social platforms.

The deal also gives people access to an enhanced mobile play-along predictive game "I Called It presented by Play MGM."

The platform will now include pre-play options, upgraded in-play features, expanded prizing and “deeper leaderboards featuring Jets fans.”

"We look forward to working with the Jets to innovate gaming, increase our customer base through cross-marketing opportunities."

"I Called It" is free to play and is available in the official New York Jets App during both home and away Jets games.

According to Jim Murren, MGM Resorts chairman and CEO, "We look forward to working with the Jets to innovate gaming, increase our customer base through cross-marketing opportunities and provide NFL fans with a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience."

A new report from American Gaming Assn. indicates that the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL could realize a combined $4.2 billion annually not just from legal, regulated sports betting, but from such related platforms as increased consumption of the leagues' products, revenue as a result of spending by betting operators and data providers, advertising, sponsorship revenue and data.

According to the AGA report, greater fan engagement and viewership could boost the NFL's total annual revenue from media rights, sponsorships, merchandise and ticket sales by 13.4%, producing $1.75 billion in new revenue from increased consumption of the league's products.

Legal sports betting could help the NFL generate an additional $573 million in revenue as a result of spending by betting operators and data providers.

The AGA study projects that gaming operators may spend $451 million on advertising, which will directly increase the league's rights fees by the same amount. An additional $92 million in sponsorship revenue and $30 million in data is also projected for the league and its teams.
