It was announced on Monday that FanDuel Group and the Memphis Grizzlies have reached a multi-year partnership. This deal makes FanDuel an official betting partner as well as the exclusive official daily fantasy sports provider for the Grizzlies.
This deal is the Grizzlies' first partnership with a sports betting operator and is also FanDuel's first such partnership with an NBA team.
The deal gives FanDuel access to official Grizzlies marks and logos to use across their #1 online sports betting platform and daily fantasy sports product. They also get access to market assets ranging from television, radio, and digital spots to in-arena signage at FedExForum.
The Grizzlies are also reportedly planning to offer several once-in-a-lifetime experiences to FanDuel customers.
As we expand our market-leading sportsbook into Tennessee, partnering with the Grizzlies was a no-brainer given the team’s popularity and long-standing success, as well as their shared mindset of being absurdly fan-focused. We are incredibly excited to collaborate with the Grizzlies as we bring unique promotions, product innovation, and engaging online experiences to Grizzlies fans and Tennessee sports fans alike.- Mike Raffenspberger, CMO, FanDuel Group
We are thrilled to have FanDuel as our first sports betting marketing partner and as our exclusive daily fantasy partner. Grizzlies fans are among the most passionate in the NBA, and we are looking forward to helping them find new ways to access their sports fandom. FanDuel has been an excellent partner in building a program that will showcase why they are one of the best sportsbooks for Grizzlies fans.- Jason Wexler, Grizzlies President
