Commanders’ sports-betting license at FedEx Field gets final OK

August 18, 2022

The Washington Commanders’ bid for a sports-betting license at FedEx Field received final approval Wednesday. The Sports Wagering Application Review Commission in Maryland approved the application for a Class A-1 sports-betting facility at the Landover, Maryland, stadium submitted by Commanders owner Dan Snyder. Under Maryland law, the review commission can only approve sports-betting licenses it finds are in the public interest, which includes whether the proposal would enhance state fiscal resources, spur economic development and help regulate an otherwise-unregulated black market.
