FanDuel becomes the first sportsbook partner of CFL
Exciting news for the Canadian sports and gambling scene as premier gaming operator FanDuel has signed up with the CFL (Canadian Football League), becoming its first and official sportsbook partner. Bettors will be able to wager on the CFL via FanDuel, with hundreds of pre-match and live markets for each game and exclusive bonuses and perks. Selections on futures like who will be the champion or Defensive Player of the Year will also be available.
FanDuel was granted a license in Ontario in April 2022, making it one of the first operators to enter the market. As one of the top online gaming companies in North America, it has 17 million players from 50 US states, offering online casino, sports betting and fantasy sports.
Exclusive bonuses and bets for Canadians
The betting platform will undergo a few changes, so it will be tailored to the needs of Ontario players. According to Dale Hooper, FanDuel Canada general manager, "We are very proud to kick off our partnership with the CFL, a league with some of Canada’s most passionate fans. The CFL is a Canadian institution, and we are excited to provide sports bettors with an industry-leading experience."
“We look forward to working with the CFL and TSN to continue to drive interest in this great league and the next generation of stars by contributing insights that add another element to the great storytelling that is taking place.”
Responsible gaming at the core
Since its inception, FanDuel has always emphasised responsible gaming to provide its members with a secure environment. Likewise, it will implement several tools and features, so Ontarians will know when they need to stop. CFL Chief Commercial Officer Tyler Mazereeuw, stated: "Responsible sports wagering is another way for our league to further its connection with our fans. In addition to taking in our fun, fast and entertaining brand of football, some fans may wish to engage with the game on a more personal level."
“We’re excited to work with FanDuel to deliver an exciting and innovative betting experience. While opening this new avenue of fandom is important to our league, wagering should only be done responsibly by adult fans who are 19 years of age and over with the means to do so.”
