DraftKings introduces new daily fantasy offering

2 Jul 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- DraftKings Inc., a leading brand in sports technology and entertainment, continues to bolster its daily fantasy sports vertical with the introduction of fantasy tennis in time for Wimbledon.

“We have always prioritized offering the most compelling games across the widest array of sports," said Mark Nerenberg, DraftKings’ Vice President of Game Operations and Development. “By expanding into tennis, we have an opportunity to provide a new and engaging experience for our current customer base while broadening our reach to attract tennis fans, globally. Over 25 million people in the U.S. alone tuned in to watch Wimbledon last year, and we want to be a part of that."

Tennis has a significant presence in the sports community, with an estimated global following of 1 billion that ranks the sport among the most popular worldwide. Between the growing international market DraftKings has established, and the strong performance of more niche sports on the platform, fantasy tennis is poised to become a favorite among fantasy players.

To play Daily Fantasy Tennis on DraftKings, customers must draft six players while staying under the $50,000 salary cap. All tennis matches are the best of three sets, except for men’s Grand Slam matches, which are the best of five sets. Since DraftKings is combining both men’s and women’s matches in the same contests, scoring will differ depending on the match length. Daily Fantasy Tennis will be available for fans in all the regions where DraftKings operates.
