The Chicago Bears and BetRivers announced an exclusive partnership early on Tuesday. With the NFL season swiftly approaching, the expectation is that the two entities will be intertwined for several years to come. An Illinois-based company at heart, Rush Street Gaming (owner of BetRivers) will look to capitalize on this opportunity to work with one of the NFL’s premier franchises. 

The exact terms of the agreement are not yet known. However, the press release states that BetRivers sportsbook will receive prominent in-stadium signage along with digital, and social media assets. Furthermore, BetRivers will be the title partner of the team’s customized free-to-play game on the Chicago Bears official app. We have seen free-to-play games from many sportsbooks and they are an excellent way to engage fans. 

The Chicago Bears President and CEO Ted Phillips expressed his excitement about fan engagement too. He said, “We look forward to connecting with our fans in fun and unique ways through these avenues and couldn’t be prouder to be building this relationship with a hometown company.” The Chicago Bears will look to add more excitement with their already exciting acquisition of QB Justin Fields. 

BetRivers sportsbook is known in the state for its popular Rivers Casino location in Des Plaines, Illinois. They will be taking full advantage of the branding that a sports team partnership could give. BetRivers already works with the Detroit Lions as well as teams in the United Soccer League (USL). The experience that BetRivers has with sports teams should help get fans more engaged than ever and offer special sports betting promotions based on the team’s play. 

Neil Bluhm, Executive Chairman and Co-Founder of Rush Street Gaming feels a special connection to this partnership. Bluhm said, “As a lifelong Bears fan, I am thrilled to have BetRivers and Rivers Casino partner with our hometown NFL team, the Chicago Bears, as the organization’s only Official Sportsbook and Casino Partner,”
