DraftKings has expanded its network of daily fantasy sports (DFS) services into Austria and Ireland.
The DFS operator will deliver all 10 of the sports currently available to players in the US to both Austria and Ireland, including the NFL American football league, Major League Baseball and basketball’s NBA.
Customers in Austria and Ireland will also have access to contests based on the NHL ice hockey league, the Canadian Football League, esports, mixed martial arts and seven different football leagues.
To mark the double launch, DraftKings will run a promotion offering players the chance to win tickets to the upcoming English Premier League football fixture between Liverpool and Manchester United.
Jason Robins, chief executive of DraftKings, said: “Sports fans in Europe are embracing the game inside the game through DraftKings’ contests and content.
“As we looked to expand our European footprint, it was an easy choice to launch in Ireland and Austria, given their renowned passion for sports.”
