Indiana Pacers, PointsBet Announce Multi-Year Partnership
The Indiana Pacers and sportsbook PointsBet have forged a new multiyear partnership, making PointsBet an official partner of the team. What does it mean for bettors? A pretty good signup deal, and a monster promo.
The Indiana Pacers and global sportsbook operator PointsBet this week announced a new multiyear partnership, making PointsBet an official sports gaming partner of the team.
As part of the agreement, the PointsBet brand will be displayed along what’s known as the “apron,” the out-of-bounds space between the baseline and the team bench. It’s the first time a sportsbook will occupy that space.
PointsBet signage will be prominent throughout the Fieldhouse, including on phone charging stations and along the scorer’s table; PointsBet will also have a presence on the Pacers’ digital platforms.
“PointsBet was thrilled to unveil the fastest sports betting app in Indiana earlier this year, powered by our best-in-market proprietary technology, premium brand mentality and clear points of difference via our product features that bettors can’t get elsewhere,” said PointsBet USA CEO Johnny Aitken.
Indiana represents a massive opportunity for PointsBet, Aitken added. “We’ll take a heavily localized approach to ensure we’re delivering the best overall customer experience Indiana sports fans and bettors are seeking.”
How ‘Bout that Bucket?
It’s great timing for this alliance, with Pacers forward TJ Warren (l.) growing his rep as “the walking bucket.” This NBA season’s unlikeliest breakout star, “bubble Warren” has been compared by one Twitter fan to primetime Michael Jordan.
That comparison might hold. Warren kicked in 32 points in the Pacers’ rout of the Orlando Magic on Tuesday, after contributing an astounding 53 points versus the Philadelphia 76ers and 34 against the Washington Wizards.
There are just two 3-0 teams in the NBA right now: the Phoenix Suns, angling for the eighth spot in the West, and those Pacers.
“This corporate partnership with PointsBet represents a real win for both companies,” said Rick Fuson, Pacers Sports & Entertainment president and COO. “We look forward to welcoming them in as a very visible brand at the Fieldhouse and through our various channels.”
