Boston based daily fantasy sports startup DraftKings has teamed with the New England Patriots on a marketing deal for the current N.F.L. season.
This is the first time that a daily fantasy site has entered into a partnership with any professional football team in the flourishing daily fantasy sports sector.
The deal will include enhanced public exposure for DraftKings through the popular LED display of its brand at the football club’s Gillette Stadium and its publicity content will also appear on New England Patriot’s social media accounts, newsletter as well as “Tip of the Week” on the Patriot’s official website.
Paul Liberman, the Marketing Executive at the fantasy sports company revealed that DraftKings is extremely proud of its association with the New England Patriots which is one of the league’s most successful franchises, right in their backyard.
Liberman also said that the Patriots are one of the league’s model franchises and that they are extremely pleased to align themselves with them. He added that they are looking forward to bringing the excitement of daily fantasy sports into the game-day experience.
Daily fantasy sports are continuing to fill the void that was left after the U.S. Department of Justice cracked down on online poker and other gambling during 2011. DraftKings and FanDuel are amongst other sites that allow their customers to compete for cash prizes in short term contests that are based on the real-life outcomes of sporting events. The contests are legal as federal law treats fantasy sports as games of skill and therefore not gambling.
Shortly after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie approved a new intrastate sports betting law, the US national sports leagues, led by NCAA and NFL noted that they are totally opposed to the new betting law and that they intend challenging the state once again.
A lawsuit was filed by the sports organizations a few days ago attempting to block the expansion of gambling that the new law represents by applying for an injunction from federal Judge Michael Ship, who ruled against New Jersey in its original attempt.
According to the league this latest initiative to legalize sports betting in the Garden State is an attempt to circumvent federal law. The bodies are supported by the fact that they have generally been successful in preventing New Jersey’s sports betting initiatives in previous court actions.
Court documentation shows that the legal challenge is being lead by the N.C.A.A., the N.F.L., the National Basketball Association and the Office of the Commissioner of Baseball.
It has been reported that New Jersey’s first sports book will have a soft opening on Sunday, 26th October, 2014 at Monmouth Park racetrack where operators plan to have 10 tellers taking bets on the National Football League only, and all by hand.
In order for a judge to grant an injunction, the leagues will have to prove that it will suffer irreparable harm from having sports wagered at Monmouth Park on Sunday.
State Senator Raymond J. Lesniak, who sponsored the bill that was signed by Governor Christie, said that he has a hard time believing that a judge will determine that the leagues can prove that they can be irreparably damaged by Monmouth racetrack’s taking bets, when people are placing bets every single day legally in Nevada. He added that they want a monopoly and want to have their gambling through fantasy sports.
