AEG and Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel Announce 16th Year in Partnership, Shaping the Future of Sports and Live Entertainment Across Southern California




Sports and entertainment company AEG and Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel (Yaamava’) have announced a groundbreaking partnership renewal, marking 16 years of successful collaboration that will continue to deliver enhanced sports and live-entertainment programming for hockey, basketball, and soccer fans across major sports and live entertainment assets in Southern California.

As part of the new agreement, brokered by AEG Global Partnerships, Yaamava’ continues its long-standing Founding Partner status, a premium and category exclusive designation across Arena, L.A. LIVE, and Dignity Health Sports Park (DHSP) as well as its designation as the official casino of the two-time Stanley Cup Champions, the LA Kings, the five-time MLS Cup champions, the LA Galaxy and the AHL’s Ontario Reign.

“We are excited to extend our partnership with AEG. AEG and Yaamava’ have similar goals: creating memorable, best-in-class experiences that last for a lifetime. I am proud of what we have accomplished together thus far, and look forward to taking this partnership to the next level,” Kenji Hall, General Manager of Yaamava’, said.

Since the partnership’s inception in 2008, Yaamava’ and AEG, two industry-leading entities with strong ties to LA, have remained deeply committed to providing Southern California and its residents with extraordinary entertainment options. Whether at the arena, on the pitch, at the resort and casino, or on the ice, together, they have helped elevate fan experiences, while creating unforgettable moments for the benefit of millions of Angelenos each year. Additionally, the partners will further their joint community outreach initiatives, with a focus on giving back to the people they both serve across the Southern California region.

“Part of what makes our collaboration with Yaamava’ so impactful is our shared values. Over the last 16 plus years, we have cultivated a unique partnership that demonstrates our mutual commitment to delivering extraordinary live-entertainment moments while also making a positive impact in our communities. We are proud to be growing our partnership for what promises to be an exciting future ahead filled with meaningful community outreach, impactful cultural celebrations and enhanced entertainment experiences for our fans,” said Russell Silvers, COO, AEG Global Partnerships.

“Our partnership with Yaamava’ is an exciting step towards redefining the fan experience and amplifying our commitment to creating unforgettable events for our patrons. The ‘Yaamava’ Club by San Manuel’ at Arena continues to stand out as a testament to our partnership’s enduring impact, serving as a symbol of innovation, excellence and the kind of world-class entertainment both of our organizations are known for,” said Lee Zeidman, President of Arena and L.A. LIVE.

New elements of the deal include opportunities for the partners to collaborate on cross promotional events at AEG’s properties in Los Angeles as well as at Yaamava’ in the Inland Empire. These events will include VIP LA Kings and Galaxy events at Yaamava’ and watch parties at The 909, Yaamava’s sport bar and grill, bringing fans together from across the I.E. to cheer on the LA Kings, Ontario Reign, and the LA Galaxy.

“Yaamava’ has been an incredible partner through the years and this extended partnership represents an exciting new chapter for our team as we continue to grow the sport of hockey throughout Southern California. We look forward to the positive impacts we’ll be able to make in the communities we both call home and the countless moments we’ll continue to share together both on and off the ice,” said LA Kings President and Hall of Famer Luc Robitaille.

“Our long-standing partnership with Yaamava’ has been instrumental in helping us deliver the ultimate game day experience to our guests. We look forward to this next step in our partnership and continuing our work together to create many more years of lasting memories for our fans,” Tom Braun, President of Business Operations and Chief Operating Officer of the LA Galaxy, said.

Over the years, Yaamava’ and AEG have dedicated their efforts to giving back to Southern California communities, with a special focus on uplifting residents of the Inland Empire where Yaamava’ is based. Their joint efforts have included impactful LA Kings and LA Galaxy youth clinics, numerous LA Kings events in partnership with community partners such as the Inland Empire Ronald McDonald House and the Boys and Girls Club Inland Empire, school beautification projects for the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians Elementary School and others, and most recently the creation of an all-inclusive playground built to help end play space inequality for youth in San Bernardino.

Following a hugely successful first event in Cincinnati, Ohio in September 2023, the Moneymaker Tour is returning to the Hard Rock Casino Cincinnati on September 17 – 30, 2024 with a packed schedule that will guarantee more than $1 million across 15 trophy events. 

In September 2023’s inaugural stop at Hard Rock Cincinnati, the $1,500 Main Event was contested by 788 players and won by Joseph Bakun for $208,034. He was joined at the final table by Chris Moneymaker himself and WSOP Champion Joseph McKeehen and as well as the top cash prize, he also took home a crystal Moneymaker Tour trophy and a guitar trophy.

The Moneymaker Tour was created in 2023 by 2003 WSOP Champion and ACR Team Pro, Chris Moneymaker and Moneymaker Tour Executive Manager, Tony Burns. The Tour was conceived as a way for Moneymaker to give poker players opportunities to have their own ordinary to extraordinary moments as he did.

Despite its relative newcomer status, the Moneymaker Tour has made a name for itself, recently being voted the third most popular live poker tournament series behind only the World Series of Poker and the World Poker Tour, in a State of Poker survey. Since its inception, there have been eight events throughout Florida, Cincinnati and Houston.

The Tour has also recently announced new venues including a first visit to the birthplace of the Moneymaker boom with an event in Las Vegas from June 28 – July 6 at MGM Grand and its first international Main Event at Casino Aruba in October.

“Hard Rock Casino Cincinnati will team up with the Moneymaker Tour for a return in 2024” said Christopher Herbert, Hard Rock Cincinnati Manger of Poker & Sportsbook. “Hard Rock Cincinnati is grateful to be a part of the fastest growing poker tour in 2023. Chris Moneymaker, Tony Burns and their staff delivered an incredible experience for our guests during the 2023 Moneymaker Tour stop. There’s no better place to be in September 2024 than Cincinnati Ohio!”

“After an amazing series last September, we are excited to return to Hard Rock Casino Cincinnati”, said Tony Burns, Executive Manager of the Moneymaker Tour. “Continuing to partner with one of the most recognisable brands in the world amplifies our reach, resonates with our audience, and rocks our business to a whole other level.”
