North American basketball’s NBA has today announced expanded deals with DraftKings and FanDuel, the US fantasy sports companies, naming them co-official sports betting partners of the league.

Under multi-year extensions, both companies will have expansive rights to integrate NBA assets throughout their sports betting and daily fantasy sports platforms.

As part of the expanded tie-ups, DraftKings and FanDuel will continue to use official NBA betting data and league marks and logos across their sports betting and free-to-play game offerings.

In addition, beginning this season, DraftKings and FanDuel will create and feature NBA content that includes game highlights across their various content platforms. 

The respective betting providers will also become sports betting partners of the NBA in Canada, where they both plan to launch later this season.

Expanding on its existing partnership dating back to 2014, FanDuel will now become the exclusive presenting partner of the weekly NBABet Show each Monday night on the league’s in-house NBA TV channel.

“We are proud of the deep working relationship we have built with the NBA, and that this agreement will celebrate a decade of official partnership.”
