Flutter Entertainment-owned FanDuel has struck a deal to become an authorised gaming partner of North America’s Major League Baseball (MLB).
Through the multi-year agreement, FanDuel will gain access to official MLB data, as well as team branding and logos, for use across its online sports betting sites and at retail sportsbook locations.
The deal marks the sports betting and daily fantasy sports operator’s first official partnership with either the MLB or its franchises.
“Fantasy sports and sports betting have become a national pastime in their own right, so it’s natural to join forces with MLB,” FanDuel president and chief operating officer, Kip Levin, said. “MLB clearly understands how working together can be beneficial for baseball fans and both companies alike.”
