PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Sports betting fans will be able to "bet like an emperor," thanks to the new Caesars Entertainment sportsbook and bar coming to Chase Field. Caesars officials have unveiled new photos of the sportsbook expected to arrive in early 2022.
The new Caesars Entertainment sportsbook will be located right outside the Chase Field Plaza, previously where Game 7 Grill was located. Caesars previously announced their partnership with the Arizona Diamondbacks in May. The sportsbook will be a two story, 20,000 square-foot venue with indoor and outdoor seating. There will be two floors dedicated to sports betting, a bar, VIP lounge, and wall-to-wall TVs. The sportsbook will be open year-round as well, so fans can visit any time they wish.
Caesars is providing fans with an array of options on how to bet, from tellers, kiosks or the Caesars Sportsbook app. The TVs will also feature a variety of sports, so fans can see in real-time outcomes of the games or events. Although the sportsbook will not be accessible to fans while they are at a Diamondbacks game, they can still place bets inside Chase Field via the Caesars app.
When sports betting goes live in Arizona on Sept. 9, fans can trek to Chase Field to make a bet at ticket windows 21-25 to make an in-person bet. Chase Field will be the first MLB Stadium where fans can place in-person wagers. There will also be five betting kiosks installed on the north side of the plaza fans can use as well.
Caesars is the second company to unveil photos of the new sportsbook. FanDuel recently gave fans an inside look at the sportsbook coming to Footprint Center in 2022 as well, featuring a video wall, betting kiosks and more.
With the variety of sportsbooks expected to come next year, Arizonans will have the opportunity to place bets at most professional sporting arenas. Fans can cheer on the Diamondbacks and then walk right outside to the sportsbook to eat, watch games, and place bets.
"Caesars Sportsbook at Chase Field will bring life to the vision of our brand by celebrating the Caesars promise of treating everyone like royalty," said Eric Hession, co-president of Caesars Digital. "These renderings provide a taste of what this incredible new venue will offer, but there's so much more we can't wait to show Arizona customers when the space officially opens. Sports bettor or not, we're hoping fans will visit to enjoy an unbeatable experience."
