TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Spectacle Entertainment says it hopes to bring around 500 much-needed jobs to the community.

Company leaders say a new partnership will help in that goal.

That's according to a release sent to our newsroom on Monday.

It announced a partnership between Spectacle Entertainment and Hard Rock International.

Hard Rock International includes around 186 Hard Rock Cafes, 241 Hard Rock shops, 29 hotels, and 12 casinos.

Together, Hard Rock and Spectacle Entertainment plan to compete for the Terre Haute site.

This comes after the Indiana General Assembly passed the sports gaming bill.

It will allow Spectacle Entertainment to move two of its casinos.

One of those could be moved to Terre Haute.

Vigo County voters would have to vote yes on a referendum on the November ballot.
