AGLC ACCEPTING PROPOSALS FOR RETAIL SPORTS BETTING
Canada’s Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis (AGLC) is accepting proposals from prospective vendors that wish to enter the province’s sports betting market.
As a first step in this process, AGLC is seeking two proponents to provide some flexibility and options in the first phase, and will consider additional vendor opportunities as the market continues to develop.
“Opening the bid process for retail sportsbetting in Alberta is another exciting step for sports fans in the province,” said AGLC President & Chief Executive Officer Kandice Machado.
“AGLC is proud to facilitate this next step that will involve the existing casino and racing entertainment centre industry while working with Alberta’s major professional sports teams. Continuing this work is an important step in offering consumers convenience and choice in their gambling entertainment options.”
AGLC has maintained ongoing communication with representatives of the casino industry and the Alberta Sports Coalition, which represents the Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers, Calgary Stampeders and Edmonton Elks.
AGLC will monitor other provincial lottery markets while gathering feedback from the Alberta sports betting industry in order to safely expand vendor opportunities in the future.
The proposal process closes on January 31, 2022 with the aim of launching retail and online sports betting during the course of the year.
