Among those who filed public comments were three sports-betting operators with presences in other states: MGM Resorts International; DraftKings; and William Hill.

Private operators can operate in the district through partnerships with either D.C. stadiums or arenas with a “Class A” license, or by working with other D.C. businesses such as bars, taverns and restaurants through a “Class B” license.

A partnership with the stadium or arena would allow the operator to offer in-stadium wagering, as well as mobile wagering within a two-block radius of the facility.
