FANDUEL PARTNERS OPTA FOR UK LAUNCH

Platform to go live in August following successful Beta trial.

Daily fantasy sports operator FanDuel has partnered Perform Group’s Opta Sports for the integration of live performance statistics in its new fantasy sports platform, set for launch in the UK market in August.

According to FanDuel, its UK platform for web and mobile has been built by the same team who developed its popular US platform.

“Our team has spent a lot of time developing the right product for the UK’s football fans and we’ve already had a lot of positive feedback from users during our beta contest phase, which was rolled out during the 2016 Euros,” said Karol Corcoran, director of international marketing for FanDuel.  “We can’t wait to bring the full product to market.”
