bet365 is not only active in Ohio – it makes an immediate impression.
One of the most reputable sports betting sites in the world has added to its ever-growing US portfolio and announced a partnership agreement with the Cleveland Guardians earlier this week.
“Everyone at bet365 is thrilled to be working with the Guards as we launch the world’s favorite online sportsbook brand in Ohio,” a bet365 spokesperson said in a statement. “The Guardians’ rich history is deeply rooted in the Cleveland community, and we are excited to be a part of their exciting future.”
bet365’s foray into the Ohio sportsbook marks bet365’s third state launch and follows successful debuts in New Jersey and Colorado. Although bet365 wasn’t part of the first wave of sports betting sites in those states, it did lead the way in Ohio, where it hopes to capture significant market share from the start.
“We are extremely pleased to partner with bet365 as our exclusive mobile sportsbook partner and to welcome them to the state of Ohio,” said Ted Baugh, Guardians vice president of Corporate and Premium Partnerships, in a statement.
“There is a tremendous bond between our organization and bet365. With nearly 90 million registered customers worldwide, bet365 is one of the world’s leading providers of online gaming and will provide our fans with a trusted resource to complement our organization’s success on and off the field.”
The multi-year deal begins on January 21st when bet365 performs at Guards Fest – the team’s annual fan-driven winter kick-off into the upcoming season. Fans can pre-register here for exclusive access to the bet365 lounge, but must be 21 or over to enter.
“We can’t wait to engage with Guards fans at Guards Fest,” said a bet365 spokesman. “The Guardians are an elite franchise with a passionate and loyal fanbase, and we look forward to creating fan-centric activations that give back to loyal Cleveland baseball fans.”

It’s a great time working alongside the Guardians, who last year won the American League Central title for the first time since 2018’s Conquer the World Series Championship.
The partnership is also the latest in a series of important developments for bet365 in the US
Earlier this week, the company announced that it had reached a multi-year agreement with Churchill Downs to offer mobile sports betting in Pennsylvania. And bet365 announced in late 2022 that it would offer sports betting enthusiasts in New Jersey the first competitive non-tournament e-sports gaming products through an agreement with SIS Limited.
