New Jersey Devils deal details
The partnership signifies the first time that PlayUp has signed a deal with a professional sports team based in the United States. Just this week, PlayUp secured a sports betting license in New Jersey to offer services to the many sports fans in the Garden State. The license is the second one in the US for the company, after receiving approval in Colorado. In the next few weeks, PlayUp will launch a new sports betting app and website.
PlayUp’s chief executive officer – USA, Dr. Laila Mintas, commented on the new deal, stating the operator is thrilled to be working with the Devils and their home arena, the Prudential Center. Dr. Mintas pointed out that the app will be live soon, and engaging with sports fans of New Jersey is essential to the company.
a permanent location known as the “PlayUp Sports Lounge”
The deal with PlayUp includes the brand holding a permanent location known as the “PlayUp Sports Lounge.” The brand will be visible on a dasherboard, an in-ice logo, and on additional signage in the Prudential Center.
PlayUp will also focus on creating digital content for fans of the Devils. Along with the Preview Show and Pre-Game option, the operator will offer a weekly panel featuring a three-on-three format.
Long-running sports betting services
The New Jersey Devils are no strangers to sports betting. The team has been at the forefront of industry sponsorships since the option became available in mid-May 2018. In December 2018, the team announced its William Hill Sports Lounge grand opening in the Prudential Center.
William Hill created the lounge to provide fans with an area for sports betting and game viewing. Since the lounge was one of the first of its kind to open in the state, staff members were on hand to assist new sports bettors with service options.
