Entertainment & Sports Law 2021: Sports Betting Goes Live in Tennessee


Following the Supreme Court’s repeal of federal gambling prohibitions in 2018, sports betting is now legal in nearly half of the United States. Among those states is Tennessee, which became the first state to implement an online-only sports betting market when it started taking bets in November 2020. In its first month of business, the state saw $130 million wagered on sports—more than any other state’s debut month in US history. This panel will examine Tennessee’s unique and rapidly-growing sports betting market, with insight from various sides of the business, including the sportsbook operators, professional sports teams, and the lottery/ regulatory body. Moderated by Alex Hall, the discussion will feature Thomas Lee of the Tennessee Sports Wagering Council, Justin Fielkow of BetMGM, and Joe Kennedy, General Counsel of Nashville Soccer Club.
