The multi-year agreement extends DraftKing's relationship with the MLB, which invested in the company's equity two years ago
A statement from DraftKings reveals that the expanded relationship will include co-branded games and extensive promotional activity both on and off-line, leveraging advantages such as MLB websites, the League's live sports streaming service MTL.tv, the MLB Network and the league’s official social media channels.
Cooperation in the physical world will include visibility at MLB ballparks and through individual MLB franchises.
