FanDuel launches Premier League contests in US
Daily fantasy sports (DFS) operator FanDuel has expanded its service offering in the US with the launch of competitions based on the English Premier League top tier of club football.
Customers will be able to build an eight-player roster of a goalkeeper, two defenders, three midfielders and two forwards, with a salary cap of $60,000.
The new contests will launch with a range of scoring categories, such as chances created and shots on target.
Premier League competitions will be offered alongside FanDuel’s established contests for American football, baseball, basketball and ice hockey.
Nigel Eccles, chief executive of FanDuel, said: “Our ultimate goal is for fans of all sports to experience what FanDuel has to offer.
“As we continue to enhance our core product, we look forward to giving the millions of US soccer fans access to the same game day excitement that bring other sports fans to our platform.”
