In the wake of North Carolina’s recent legalization of online gambling, the Charlotte Hornets have announced a new partnership with bet365. This marks the first such agreement for a professional sports team in the state.
The Hornets were eager to capitalize on this new trend and provide fans with additional ways to engage with their favorite sports teams. Their Chief Revenue Officer, Jacob Gallagher, expressed excitement about the partnership and how it will benefit fans.
Bet365, a British company, will now become one of the Hornets’ seven major sponsors as part of an exclusive long-term agreement. The partnership is effective immediately, allowing fans to place bets on games from their phones while watching their favorite teams play at Spectrum Center.
