FanDuel is excited to announce the start of a multiyear partnership with the NBA. This is our first partnership with a professional sports organization, and the NBA’s first time working with a provider of one-day fantasy sports.

Working in concert will allow us to offer fans the “Official One-Day Fantasy Basketball Game of the NBA,” a free contest found on both FanDuel.com and NBA.com. U.S. fans will have the opportunity to choose teams and compete against one another for prizes, including game tickets, unique NBA experiences, merchandise, and memorabilia.

“Our new one-day fantasy game with FanDuel provides our fans with another way to connect with their favorite teams and players throughout the season,” said NBA Deputy Commissioner Mark Tatum.  “FanDuel has established itself as the leader in the marketplace and the new game will be a great addition to our overall fantasy offerings.”

“The NBA-FanDuel partnership creates a dynamic opportunity to engage millions of NBA fans on a second screen throughout basketball season,” said Nigel Eccles, CEO of FanDuel.  “Before this partnership, FanDuel was already on track to have more than 1.1 million active users in 2014, and we believe this partnership will further accelerate our growth and impact on the broader sports entertainment industry.”

Additionally, our new NBA Official One-Day Fantasy Basketball Game will be promoted using a multitude of vehicles including  NBA TV, NBA.com, and NBA Mobile, along with broadcast partners ABC/ESPN and TNT.

The partnership has given the NBA an equity stake in FanDuel. Furthermore, we are firmly committed to bringing one-day fantasy basketball to fans across the country, and have partnered with individual teams to make this happen.  In addition to previously announced partnerships with the Orlando Magic and Brooklyn Nets, we have also announced new partnerships with the Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks, and New York Knicks

Fan Duel is the the largest Daily play Fantasy Site available for real money play in the U.S.
