The partnership between Green Bay Packers and Oneida Nation will make the latter’s gambling facility the Official Casino of the team.
The partnership is the first of its kind between the team and a casino. It comes after changes in NFL guidelines that give permission for more robust partnerships and casinos. The NFL team and the Oneida nation have been working together for more than 20 years.
Craig Benzel, Packers vice president of sales and business development, said: “As two strong Northeastern Wisconsin organisations, the Packers and Oneida Nation have a long history of working together. We look forward to continuing to build upon our partnership by creating new and exciting experiences for fans in the years ahead.”
Louise Cornelius, gaming general manager for Oneida Casino, added: “Oneida Casino is celebrating our 25th anniversary this year, and we are proud to help mark that milestone by enhancing our partnership with the Packers. As the Official Casino of the Green Bay Packers, we are excited to work even more closely with the organisation to offer unforgettable entertainment for fans, visitors and community members.”
