MaximBet Appoints Rockies Star Blackmon As First MLB Ambassador – Marketing & Affiliate

Carousel Group brand MaximBet has announced a new partnership with Colorado Rockies player Charlie Blackmon, marking his first deal with an active Major League Baseball (MLB) athlete.

Under the agreement, four-time MLB All-Star Blackmon will become a MaximBet ambassador and will be featured in marketing campaigns, fan events, promotions and social media content.

Blackmon ranks second all-time in hits, games played and at-bats for the Rockies and is third in runs scored and total bases in team history

“Learning more about MaximBet, I knew it was absolutely the right brand for me,” said Blackmon. “MaximBet has truly connected with the local Colorado community, and I look forward to having fun with MaximBet and surprising fans with amazing ‘money can’t buy’ experiences all season long.”

MaximBet General Manager Daniel Graetzer added, “Charlie is one of the most revered Rockies players of all time, and his style and professional success make him a perfect fit for MaximBet.

“We are thrilled to welcome Charlie to the MaximBet family. We look forward to him stepping out of the ballpark for us as we continue to grow in Colorado and across the country.

The wider deal will include MaximBet collaborating with artist SolesbySir to design one-of-a-kind baseball and personal interest items for Blackmon. Additionally, MaximBet and SolesbySir will offer select new account holders their own personalized items from the SolesbySir collection.

The partnership will further strengthen MaximBet’s presence in Colorado following its launch in the state in September of last year. The deployment in Colorado marked the brand’s entry into the American market.

Founded in April 2021, MaximBet also announced last year that it would offer a wide-ranging name/image/likeness (NIL) agreement to all NCAA female varsity athletes from Colorado.

MaximBet also has plans to launch in Indiana and Iowa, while securing market access deals in Pennsylvania and Ohio, the latter of which has yet to launch legal sports betting.
