BetRegal, the Canadian sports betting and e-gaming giant, has inked a landmark 3-year deal becoming the official sports betting partner of the PGA Championship of Canada presented by TaylorMade Golf and adidas Golf.
The news comes after last month’s decision by the Canadian senate to approve Bill C-218, legalizing single-game sports betting in Canada, paving the way for new and exciting partnership opportunities between sports entities and regulated gaming platforms. It also marks BetRegal’s second major agreement following the company’s announcement as the official sports gaming partner of the Canadian Football League (CFL).
Commenting on the partnership Teejay Alderdice, the PGA of Canada President said:
“Today is a historical day for the PGA of Canada, our 3.700 Members and the Canadian golf industry as a whole. With the sports betting landscape evolving in Canada, we have been thoughtful with our strategy and are excited to add a Canadian gaming partner that will elevate the PGA Championship of Canada presented by TaylorMade Golf and adidas Golf and present new and exciting opportunities for our members and the millions of golfers they interact with on a daily basis”
The partnership’s debut event is already in full swing in the Vieux Village in Bromont, Quebec until the 7th of August. Next year, BetRegal will be able to assist the association as they celebrate the 100th playing of the event, working hand in hand to push the championship to new heights while continuing to celebrate its storied history.
“PGA of Canada is one of the most well-respected sports organizations in the country and the BetRegal team is excited to bring the partnership to life in compelling ways for fans,” said Michale Mirti, CEO of BetRegal. “This is an important partnership for us as we look to educate Canadians about online gaming and set the groundwork for our Canadian operations.”
