Associated Press Deal
The FanDuel Group also just recently announced a new deal with the Associated Press. The agreement will see the gaming company become the exclusive sports odds provider for the global sports report of the AP.
The terms of the deal will see the odds from FanDuel Sportsbook added to the daily sports odds fixtures of the AP, along with game previews. Additional sports stories will also include the data when odds are mentioned. For the AP, the brand will retain the editorial rights to any content published.
There are plans to integrate the widgets of FanDuel within the sports pages of the APNews site. The deal will also see content from FanDuel distributed across the AP wire. Barry Bedlan, the global director of text and new markets for AP’s product, commented on the new deal by stating:
“As sports betting becomes more commonplace, our customers are increasingly asking for this kind of information. It makes sense to work with one of the largest reputable sportsbooks in the United States to provide a consistent, credible reference point for AP and its customers.”
Now that the deal has been announced, the sports odds of FanDuel can already be seen across AP content.
Along with winning awards and signing a new partnership deal, FanDuel has also been busy working on opening new sportsbooks. Back in March, the company announced a new facility opened in Bally’s Casino in Atlantic City. Soon after, FanDuel launched a spot at the former Fairmount Park Racetrack. The new venue is titled FanDuel Sportsbook & Horse Racing.
Both properties are doing well, offering players many great options when it comes to sports betting. The locations launched just in time for March Madness, providing players with access to premium options for the NCAA tournament games.
