Monday, January 18, 2016 : MONDOGOAL ANTICIPATES LAUNCH IN ITALY

Product in final test phase.

Daily fantasy sports operator Mondogoal is set for launch in the Italian market following a strategic technology partnership with INTRALOT Italy and the near completion of its final test phase.

Despite the ongoing furore surrounding daily fantasy sports in the US, the Boston-based company has spread its bets by focusing its product in the UK under a Gambling Commission license in partnership with Yahoo! while still continuing operations in the US.

In addition, Mondogoal has secured official fantasy sports partnerships with Barcelona, Chelsea, AS Roma, Tottenham Hot Spurs, West Ham United, Liverpool and Valencia football clubs within a relatively short space of time.

The company is completing the last of its platform tests to ensure Italian customers a “high level experience comparable to its US and UK markets”, said Arshad Shergul, chief executive officer and founder of MondoGoal.
