Grizzlies Had Nice Run Last Season
This partnership comes after an excellent season by the Memphis Grizzlies. They were 56-26 in the regular season, finishing as the No. 2 seed behind the play of star player Ja Morant. During the 2021-22 season, Morant, who finished seventh in the MVP voting, averaged 27.4 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 6.7 assists per game.
The Grizzlies’ season fell just a bit short, losing in the Western Conference semifinals 4-2 to the eventual NBA champion Golden State Warriors.
While Caesars Sportsbook will have access to use the official Grizzlies logos and marks, this relationship, according to Caesars and the Grizzlies, “expands Caesars Sportsbook’s already-established footprint in Tennessee while building upon Caesars’ legacy in the region through its offering of premium entertainment experiences nearby at top gaming destination, Horseshoe Tunica.”
What’s In The Partnership
“The Memphis Grizzlies are an exciting young NBA team, and it’s great to announce this partnership ahead of what should be a special season for the franchise,” Chris Holdren, Co-President of Caesars Digital, said in a news release. “Tennessee is an important state for us, filled with passionate sports fans. We embrace the chance to strengthen our connection in the Memphis area through the legacy of our nearby resort, Horseshoe Tunica. This collaboration allows us to engage more sports fans while bringing them experiences they can’t get anywhere else.”
Caesars Sportsbook will also be the presenting partner for shows on Grind City Media, including The Chris Vernon Show, The Odds Couple, the GCM Pick ’em Panel and more.
Caesars will also have “TV visible fix in-game signage” through the Forum. They will be featured on the Grizzlies’ pre-and-post-game radio broadcasts and other digital and social media content.
“We are thrilled to partner with Caesars Sportsbook, one of the biggest names in sports and entertainment,” said Memphis Grizzlies President Jason Wexler. “The alignment of Caesars Sportsbook with Grind City Media digital shows, content, and features will enhance our continued development and execution of best-in-class content for all sports fans to enjoy. We also look forward to the opportunity to welcome our fans to FedExForum to visit the newly rebranded Caesars Sportsbook Lounge to watch their favorite sports programming or for hosting a private event.”
Tennessee Now Has Caesars Rewards
Bettors in Tennessee will now have access to Caesars Rewards, a program in which players can earn both Tier and Rewards Credits by wagering money. These credits can be redeemed for bonus cash or discounted stays at resorts, dining experiences, or, more specifically, to the Grizzlies, “invitation-only events with the Grizzlies, VIP hospitality at FedExForum, Grizzlies merchandise, and more.”
