Bally’s Corporation has entered into a new partnership with the Major League Baseball (MLB) team, New York Yankees. Under the agreement, four Bally’s brands will be designated as official partners for the New York team.
The Bally Bet brand will become the team’s official sports betting partner; Monkey Knife Fight will be the new official partner of Daily Fantasy Sports; Bally Casino is an iGaming partner and Bally Play is an official free-to-play partner. Bally Casino Atlantic City will also serve as a great partner for the Yankees.
The operator and its four brands will benefit from branding opportunities within the team’s stadium, including LED advertising positions on the outside pitch wall, pitch-facing walls and LED signs throughout the Great Hall.
In addition, Bally’s will receive in-game functionality in the center field of the stadium and other brand activations.

We hope that their branding at Yankee Stadium, along with their customer engagement at the stadium, will greatly strengthen their global presence. of Bally’s in New York betting”.
