The Eagles Become the Latest Local Team to Partner with a Daily Fantasy Site
The Eagles (and half the league) have announced a partnership with FanDuel. From the Philadelphia Business Journal:
The Eagles’ sponsorship agreement features branding for FanDuel at Lincoln Financial Field, including a “fantasy tower” in the northwest corner of the stadium and on the Pattison Avenue marquee. The tower will delver fantasy stats to fans during games. The sponsorship also includes the Eagles and FanDuel offering unique hospitality experiences for FanDuel participants, such as meeting the team’s first-round draft pick, watching the team run onto the field during a regular season home game and competing in a flag football game with 20 friends at Lincoln Financial Field.
The Eagles were one of 14 NFL teams to sign a marketing deal with FanDuel Inc., the New York Business Journal reports. FanDuel now has agreements with 15 NFL teams, as it announced a multiyear deal with the New York Jets at the Super Bowl in February.
I’m just going to keep writing this, because I want my told-you-so to have high SEO value when it comes true: When online sports gambling gets legalized, it’ll be Draft Kings and FanDuel that step forward and raise their hands and say, “We have millions of credit cards on file and can handle this sort of thing securely.”
Oh hey and speaking of: PLAY IN DRAFT KINGS’ $60K MOONSHOT LEAGUE TONIGHT. I’m in. Only $3 to enter. Finished GREEN in my first contest of the season last week– $3… which means I’ve already earned more profit this season than the Phils.
