LAS VEGAS (May 26, 2023) – MGM Resorts International announced today it has entered into an agreement with the MoneyGram Haas F1 Team, designating the entertainment company as an official partner for the 2023 Formula One season.


The partnership, MGM Resorts’ first with a Formula One racing team, includes steering wheel branding on the VF-23 during the Monaco, Singapore, Austin and Las Vegas races, as well as digital and social presence in MoneyGram Haas F1 Team promotional content throughout the season.


“The MoneyGram Haas F1 Team is a long-time, proven leader and innovator in the Formula One industry with one of racing’s most passionate fan bases,” said Lance Evans, MGM Resorts’ Senior Vice President of Sports and Sponsorship. “This partnership gives us a phenomenal opportunity to showcase the MGM Rewards experience as we welcome the popular sport to Las Vegas in November.”

Guenther Steiner, Team Principal of MoneyGram Haas F1 Team, said, “I’m delighted that we’re partnering with a real Las Vegas institution in the form of MGM Resorts International. We’re naturally very excited as a team to be utilizing their properties throughout the Las Vegas event – not least as we know we’ll have outstanding amenities and luxurious surroundings at our disposal for both work and rest during race week. The team at MGM Resorts has been fantastic to work with and I think they’re pretty enthusiastic to be partnering together with America’s only Formula 1 team at such a headline event for the city. We’re looking forward to working on some fan-focused events and truly bringing all that’s special about Formula 1 to the fans in Las Vegas.”
