The agreement allows PointsBet to integrate WNBA games into its betting platforms, as well as gaining access to sponsorship opportunities with the league’s franchises.
“We are thrilled to align with the WNBA and bring the world-class PointsBet experience to one of the most digitally-engaged fan bases on earth,” PointsBet USA chief executive Johnny Aitken commented.
“The WNBA has done a phenomenal job with growing fan engagement, and PointsBet is excited to be a piece of that puzzle moving forward,” he added. “In owning and operating our technology from end to end, PointsBet can innovate our product and personalise our offerings according to fan interest and needs – WNBA supporters will appreciate this competitive advantage, as well as our app’s market-leading speed and ease of use.”
As part of the agreement, PointsBet and the WNBA will collaborate on efforts to promote and protect the integrity of league games.
WNBA commissioner Cathy Engelbert said the deal would enhance a second-screen experience that would increase fan engagement with players, teams and the league.
