Betting and igaming operator Rush Street Interactive (RSI) has announced National Football League (NFL) Hall of Famer Mike Ditka as a brand ambassador.
Ditka, who played for the Chicago Bears, Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys during the 1960s and 1970s, will become an NFL brand ambassador exclusively for RSI’s BetRivers.com brand.

Ditka is one of only two NFL legends to have won a Super Bowl as a player, assistant coach and a head coach, achieving the playing and assistant coach titles with the Dallas Cowboys.
“BetRivers strives to develop trusting relationships with its players; I’m really looking forward to helping strengthen those bonds even further by offering advice to its players on how to win,” Ditka said.
RSI president Richard Schwartz added: “We are honored to partner with one of the greatest coaches in NFL history; someone who has deep roots in Chicago and is one of the most important figures in modern sports and culture.
