New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy will be one of the chief speakers at the upcoming Betting on Sports America conference. He will share his ideas about the future of sports betting in New Jersey. The Betting on Sports America conference is one of the most significant events of its kind in the US. It will be held in April (23-25), this year.
The conference will host a range of speakers from across the gaming industry and the political spectrum. The main event will be held at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in New Jersey.The event is organised by SBC , and they are one of the biggest sports betting trade event organizers in the US and Europe.
The New Governor’s presence at the conference is crucial as the state was leading the campaign to get sports betting legalized in the US. As such, Murphy has been a staunch supporter of the legalization of sports betting and played an essential role in ensuring that the sports betting was regulated in his state.
Talking about the Betting on Sports America, Murphy said: “It is my pleasure to address delegates from the international sports betting industry who will join us here in New Jersey for the inaugural Betting on Sports America conference. We are immensely proud of the integral part that New Jersey played in taking down PASPA and in doing so laying the solid foundations for legal sports wagering to be enjoyed by Americans across the nation. New Jersey has been sports betting success story, and we hope that other states seeking to go legal will replicate that positive experience.”
SBC CEO and Founder Rasmus Sojmark welcomed the governor’s decision and said: “We are delighted to have someone with the huge political standing and stature of Phil Murphy join us for what will be an unmissable event. The Governor will play a fundamental part in shaping and delivering legal sports wagering for New Jersey, and we’re looking forward with high anticipation to his keynote address at Betting on Sports America.”
Murphy’s contribution to legalize sports betting is not hidden. He was also the first to make a legal sports wager at Oceanport’s Monmouth Park racetrack with a $20 bet on Germany to win the 2018 FIFA World Cup plus a $20 on the New Jersey Devils to win Lord Stanley’s Cup.
