First Retail Sportsbook Opens Inside NFL Stadium

FedExField In Maryland Home To Fanatics Shop


The NFL continues to deepen its relationship with sports betting.

Fanatics Betting and Gaming, the online and retail sports betting division of the Fanatics digital sports platform, became the first legal sports betting operator, in partnership with the Washington Commanders, to open a retail sportsbook inside an NFL Stadium.

The Fanatics Sportsbook at FedExField in Maryland is the company’s first entry into the legal sports betting market, and it also represents the Commanders’ formal market access entry in Maryland.

Maryland kicked off sports betting in 2022.

“We are excited to bring the Fanatics Sportsbook to Maryland at FedExField. Our first retail location, with adjacency to the Commanders Team store, is a physical representation of what Fanatics will deliver to sports fans all over North America,” said Ari Borod, Chief Business Officer, Fanatics Betting and Gaming.

“We are rolling out our platform first at retail, and we will have more exciting news to share in the coming months as we bring to market new mobile technology designed to improve the betting experience for sports fans.”

“When our journey began over two years ago, we knew we had to reinvigorate the guest experience at FedExField and open the campus to the community. Today is a special moment in realizing that vision as we open this innovative sportsbook, operating seven days a week for sports fans throughout our community,” said Washington Commanders Team President Jason Wright.

The Washington Commanders serve as the market access partner for the Fanatics Sportsbook. The newly designed sportsbook is 5,000 square feet and features eight betting windows and 21 self-service betting kiosks.

Following the NFL’s Commercial Gambling policy, the sportsbook will not take any bets on the dates of Washington Commanders’ home games.
