FanDuel, the leader in one-day fantasy sports, has joined the Orlando Magic as a “Champions of the Community (COTC)” sponsor.
COTC sponsors seek opportunities to work with the Magic on outreach initiatives that benefit the local community. FanDuel joins Walt Disney World, GEICO, Florida Hospital, PepsiCo, Southwest Airlines, Harris and Chase as Champions of the Community.
“We are honored to have FanDuel join our family,” said Orlando Magic CEO Alex Martins. “This is yet another example of an innovative company showing its commitment to the Magic. We believe this sponsorship will be mutually beneficial and will provide the opportunity for FanDuel to deliver a direct, positive and engaging message to our fan base and beyond. Through this new agreement, together we will also seek opportunities for local outreach.”
FanDuel’s mission is to transform sports with one-day, fantasy sports games. Founded in 2009, FanDuel offers an unrivaled game selection, fast game play and cash prizes across both web and mobile devices. FanDuel uses the same format as any other season-long fantasy game, the only difference is games last one day or one week with winnings paid out immediately after the game’s end.
“One-day fantasy basketball is an exploding category for us,” said FanDuel CEO Nigel Eccles. “This partnership helps us not only build out the FanDuel brand, but also ensures that we can start to give back to the community in a much bigger way than we’ve been able to do before. We are very excited to be working with Magic on this and feel they are a natural fit for us.”
Customers will experience the FanDuel brand at the Amway Center. FanDuel will receive prominent exposure at the venue, including on-the-court exposure. FanDuel will also sponsor the North Club Bar at the Amway Center, where fans will be able to get up-to-date stats on their favorite players, as well as the Orlando Magic’s Mobile App.
