- Betfred Sports has launched mobile sports betting in Virginia.
- Betfred has partnered with Loudoun United FC of the United Soccer League (USL) to serve as the team’s official sports betting partner.
- Betfred Sports is now live in Iowa, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Louisiana, Arizona, Washington, Maryland, Virginia, and Ohio with the opening of their first Nevada retail location coming soon.
Save a few exceptions, the post PASPA US sports betting market has been a complete dumpster fire. You can count the states that have more or less gotten it right on your fingers and have a couple left over. Not a huge surprise that the nascent mobile sports betting ecosystem in Ontario is superior to any US jurisdiction.
Thankfully, it’s not all bad. One of the bright spots of US sports betting post PASPA has been the growth of Betfred Sports. They were the first sportsbook to take a retail bet in Colorado–the US state that has gotten it ‘most right’–they’ve managed to grow and prosper despite a regulatory environment that is largely set up for ‘non legacy’ gaming companies to fail. They recently launched in Ohio and they’ve finally gained licensing in Nevada to operate the retail sportsbook at the Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. The plan is for them to provide Nevada with another much needed mobile ‘out’ later this year.
Betfred Sports is now live in nine states with today’s announcement of a launch in Virginia. Not long ago, Betfred announced a multi-year partnership with Loudoun United FC of the United Soccer League (USL). The agreement makes Betfred the team’s official sports betting partner and gives them market access in the state of Virginia. Betfred will also be the back-of-jersey sponsor for the Red-and-White home and away kits beginning with the 2023 USL Championship Season with ‘additional brand integrations’ forthcoming.
I’m sure you know where to get the Betfred Sports app for Android or iOS.
Loudoun United FC Executive Business Officer Doug Raftery welcomed Betfred Sports to the team:
“We’re excited to introduce the Red-and-White Community to our sports betting partner, Betfred. You can expect to see a prominent presence from Betfred at home games and various online club channels. We look forward to a fantastic 2023 season and helping to scale our business together.”
Bryan Bennett, COO of Betfred Sports, did the honors for his company:
“We are excited to finally begin online operations in the Commonwealth of Virginia and look forward to activating our partnership with Loudoun United. This is the ideal time to launch sports betting with several major sporting events happening over the coming weeks and months, and of course with the USL Championship season kicking off soon.”
So congrats to Betfred and best of wishes for the future. I’m really looking forward to seeing them taking bets at the Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. At last check, they were listed as ‘coming soon’ on the property’s website and word on the street is that they could be ready by Super Bowl Sunday.
