The Arizona Cardinals are well on their way to being the first NFL team to have a sportsbook built into their facility.

The Arizona Cardinals’ State Farm Stadium site is a popular location for NFL and collegiate football games. Next year, the domed building located in Glendale, west of Phoenix will be home to it’s very own sportsbook.

On Monday, the Arizona Cardinals, BetMGM, and Gila River Hotels and Casinos announced that they will collaborate in a 3-way deal to establish four new sports betting locations in Phoenix. One of the sportsbooks is to be located at State Farm Stadium, which is home to the Arizona Cardinals.
