“We’re thrilled to be partnering with the Blue Jackets to bring a world-class retail experience to the arena district in downtown Columbus,” said Ari Borod, Chief Business Officer, Fanatics Betting and Gaming.“The Jackets are one of the youngest teams in the league, and we are excited to leverage our partnership to grow with them and complement our online sports betting experience that is currently being beta-tested in Ohio.”
The Ohio sportsbook will be located at 20 Nationwide Blvd., across the street from Nationwide Arena, where the Blue Jackets play their home games. The location is also close to other major attractions in the Arena District, such as the Greater Columbus Convention Center and the Huntington Park Baseball Stadium, home to Cleveland Guardians AAA affiliate Columbus Clippers.
“The Columbus Blue Jackets are constantly seeking new and exciting ways to engage with our fans,” said Blue Jackets Sr. Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Cameron Scholvin. “We believe this collaboration with Fanatics Betting and Gaming on a world-class sportsbook location just outside the doors of Nationwide Arena in the heart of the Arena District does just that.”
The Fanatics Columbus location promises Ohioans a state of the art sportsbook and sports betting experience where they can wager on any sporting event approved by the Ohio Gaming Commission. The Fanatics sportsbook will offer their customers a bar and restaurant, and the location boasts over 5000 square feet of amenities, including;
- Four live betting windows
- 14 self-serve betting kiosks
- One giant LED Video Wall
- 20 TV Monitors with live feeds offering US and international sporting events
The Fanatics Columbus sportsbook will be the 15th retail sportsbook operating in Ohio. The new Columbus location is expected to open in late August, just in time for the 2023 NFL and NCAAF seasons.
