FanDuel Group announced an exclusive partnership with former Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee on Monday, a multi-year deal that includes weekly appearances on the company's sports betting program, “More Ways to Win.”
In addition to his on-air appearances, McAfee will do guest spots on various FanDuel podcasts, host daily fantasy contests on FanDuel and make regular appearances at FanDuel Sportsbooks throughout the country. McAfee will also create digital content for the brand and take over FanDuel social media accounts throughout the 2019 NFL season.
He will appear alongside Lisa Kerney, Dave Weaver and Dani Klupenger as well as FanDuel Sportsbook oddsmaker John Sheeran during NFL pregame coverage on “More Ways to Win” throughout the season. The show airs Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning from 10 a.m. to 12 noon EST on TVG Television Network.
McAfee, who hosts the wildly popular "Pat McAfee Show," has remained involved in the world of sports since his retirement from professional football following the 2016 NFL season. He had a stint with Barstool Sports and has also served as an analyst for Fox Sports' college and NFL broadcasts. Most recently, he became part of ESPN's 2019 "Thursday Night College Football" team.
With McAfee now a part of the stable of talent at FanDuel, he'll be able to provide a potentially new audience with exclusive sports betting and DFS content. A rising name in the sports media world, McAfee should help aid the continued growth of the FanDuel Group in these verticals throughout this multi-year partnership.
