Ontario sports betting fans rejoice!
In anticipation of a fruitful Toronto Blue Jays postseason run, theScore Bet is teaming up with renowned Toronto-based catering and food service company, The Food Dudes, to bring a playoff atmosphere to the city’s downtown core.
“We’re in the heart of Toronto, two blocks away from the Rogers Centre, and there’s no better way to celebrate the Jays going the distance this postseason than having the best grub in the city!” said Ryan Williams, partnership activation specialist at theScore. “Fans can expect to receive a food festival atmosphere with tunes bumping and some official Blue Jays playoff merch with their combo before the Jays’ first pitch.”
Running now through Sunday (Oct. 9), the collaboration features a pop-up food truck serving elevated versions of ballpark favourites, such as the Bet Mode Burger, The Catch Fish Tacos, and Touch ‘Em All Tater Tots. Each menu item is free to anyone who is already a member of theScore Bet as well as those who download the app and register at the event.
Jays open their wild card series against the Mariners today
Toronto begins its best-of-three wild card MLB playoff series with the Seattle Mariners today at 4:07 p.m. (EST) at the Rogers Centre.
theScore Bet, a company that traces its roots to Hamilton and Toronto, is the exclusive gaming partner of the Jays.
As for the food, there was a noticeable buzz on day one with long lines forming throughout the three-hour window. The combination of lively music, enticing aromas and friendly faces produced an inviting atmosphere that stood out amongst the din of a typical late afternoon in downtown Toronto.
For events of this nature to be successful, it starts with creating an atmosphere that is equal parts inviting and inclusive. On paper, some may interpret this as an event for people aged 19+ given the gambling age restrictions in Ontario, but the on-site turnout proved otherwise.
From young families to people in their early-to-mid-20’s to those in their 60’s, it was, in many ways, representative of what you would see at a Toronto Blue Jays home game.
It is another example of how theScore Bet is looking to share its hometown love of the Jays with its current and future customers.
