About Us

The Sports Wagering Council (“SWAC”) is responsible for regulating online sports wagering in Tennessee. The SWAC is charged with overseeing the license and registration process for online sports wagering operators and suppliers, as well as monitoring and enforcing operators’ and industry suppliers’ compliance with the Tennessee Sports Wagering Act and its related rules.

The Sports Wagering Advisory Council was given the authority to regulate online sports wagering by the General Assembly through Public Chapter 593, which became law on May 27, 2021, with an effective date of January 1, 2022. Prior to the SWAC’s oversight, the Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation was responsible for regulating online sports wagering.
