DraftKings and Sports & Social to launch sports bars with new partnership
| By Robert Fletcher
Gambling and sports betting operator DraftKings has entered into a strategic partnership with US entertainment brand Sports & Social, owned by the Cordish Companies, in order to create new DraftKings sports bars across the US.
The new relationship will create upscale Sports & Social/DraftKings sports bars at locations across the US, beginning with Nashville, Tennessee and Detroit, Michigan, pending local regulatory approvals.
DraftKings and Sports & Social said the new venues, which will be designed by ICRAVE, will form a new sports betting and entertainment experience for consumers in the US.
“Today, so much of sports betting is focused on the mobile-technology aspect, however the in-person experience is an integral layer that we look forward to advancing alongside Sports & Social’s premier dining and entertainment offerings,” DraftKings’ chief business officer Ezra Kucharz said.
