The return of the XFL to the gridiron drafted new opportunities for pro football players seeking to live out their dreams. It’s also offered an opportunity for the XFL to partner with DraftKings.
DraftKings is serving as the official daily fantasy sports (DFS) partner and as an authorized gaming partner of the XFL.
In terms of sports betting, DraftKings is offering both weekly game wagering and future book markets on the XFL. They are also providing prices each week on XFL players for DFS drafts.
As an official partner of the XFL, DraftKings will have the ability to integrate XFL marks, logos, and player imagery into its gaming platforms and marketing promotions.
The XFL has been open about its relationship with sports betting. The league is referring to odds on its games throughout live broadcasts.
“We want what our fans want, and millions of football fans have made fantasy and legal wagering an essential part of their football experience,” Jeffrey Pollack, President and COO of the XFL, said in a statement. “DraftKings is a leader in this space and shares our commitment to giving fans more ways to connect to the game we all love.”
