Lately, there’s been a sea of red taking over Wild Horse Pass after Gila River was named the Official Hotels & Casinos of the Arizona Cardinals. For 15 years, the Arizona Cardinals have enjoyed a unique relationship with Gila River, through which the two organizations have collaborated to create exciting promotions for fans, often teaming up to support local charities.

To celebrate the official announcement, Gila River is offering more than $250,000 in prizes in one of the largest promotions in its 25-year history. Some of the fun promotions include an Arizona Cardinals Biggest Fan contest, where fans show off their Cardinals spirit by uploading a photo to CardinalsBiggestFan.com. Prizes include season tickets, but hurry, because this contest ends on Sunday, Dec. 15.

Gila River Hotels & Casinos has also partnered with Arizona Ford Dealers for a Football Truck Giveaway, and fans can “Check in with the Cardinals” by booking a custom Cardinals-designed hotel room, which is available year-long.
