Get ready, Tennessee — Caesars Sportsbook and the Memphis Grizzlies announced a multi-year partnership late last week that is set to enhance the gameday experience for fans at FedExForum.

As a result of the Aug. 3 announced partnership, Grizzlies fans will gain access to a Caesars Sportsbook lounge in time for the 2022-2023 NBA season at Memphis' home area in downtown Memphis, Tennessee.

Here are some details of this new multi-year partnership:

  • Caesars-branded lounge inside the FedExForum
  • Combined digital and televised-brand exposure (ex. Twitter, "Chris Vernon Show").
  • Caesars will also be partnered with "The Odds Couple",  a show created by Grind City Media.
  • Advertising partnership with the Grind City Media Podcast Network.
  • Open lounge days year-round for public or private events.

“The Memphis Grizzlies are an exciting young NBA team, and it’s great to announce this partnership ahead of what should be a special season for the franchise,” said Chris Holdren, co-president of Caesars Digital, in a statement. “Tennessee is an important state for us, filled with passionate sports fans. We embrace the chance to strengthen our connection in the Memphis area through the legacy of our nearby resort, Horseshoe Tunica. This collaboration allows us to engage more sports fans while bringing them experiences they can’t get anywhere else.”

The Grizzlies are one of the NBA's most talented young teams with a bright future behind Ja Morant and company. Caesars and the Grizzlies appear to be leaning into that fact with this partnership, as blending a leading sportsbook lounge with a contending NBA team could make for a great wagering experience for in-state bettors.

“We are thrilled to partner with Caesars Sportsbook, one of the biggest names in sports and entertainment,” Memphis Grizzlies president Jason Wexler said in a statement. “The alignment of Caesars Sportsbook with Grind City Media digital shows, content, and features will enhance our continued development and execution of best-in-class content for all sports fans to enjoy. We also look forward to the opportunity to welcome our fans to FedExForum to visit the newly rebranded Caesars Sportsbook Lounge to watch their favorite sports programming or for hosting a private event.”

Current Pro Team-Sportsbook Partnerships in Tennessee

The Caesars-Grizzlies partnership is the third pro team/sportsbook partnership in the state.

The Tennessee Titans and Nashville Predators have existing sports betting partnerships with BetMGM and Bally Bet that began in 2020 and 2021, respectively.

Tennessee does not have any retail sportsbooks at the moment, so this Caesars' lounge is expected to become the first physical sports betting location in the state.
