Jackpocket, a third-party app that provides secure ways to order official state lottery tickets in the United States, has become the ESPN New York sports app’s exclusive sponsor.
This partnership will provide Jackpocket with access to special ESPN events and experiences related to the New York sports scene (eight VIP ticket invites to the Yankees’ Manager Aaron Boone’s cocktail event at the New York Athletic Club will be provided).
Additionally, ESPN New York will promote the third-party app and will include a title on the app’s homepage, as well as a link to download the Jackpocket app.
ESPN New York Market Manager Vinny DiMarco added: “We are thrilled to be working with Jackpocket. Adding the Jackpocket title to the ESPN New York App brings sports and gaming together, while also providing a unique and convenient way to serve our fans.
“We are excited about the partnership’s future as it evolves with event activation and content integration.”
Following previous agreements with local New York City teams such as the Mets and Jets, this agreement with ESPN represents one of Jackpocket’s largest sports broadcasting promotions.
Founder and CEO of Jackpocket, Peter Sullivan, stated: “As the summer sports season heats up, our new partnership with ESPN New York couldn’t come at a better time.
“ESPN is an iconic brand, and their popularity in the tri-state area is something local fans always rely on for the best and most comprehensive coverage of New York’s illustrious sports teams.”
