DraftDay’s Platform To Power CrownBet And Fox Sports DFS Venture
Last month’s reports of a joint DFS venture between Fox Sports Australia and the online gambling division of Crown Resorts, CrownBet has now been confirmed. It has been announced that DraftDay will power the new DFS operation by supplying their technology platform which will operate under the Draftstars brand at Draftstars.com.au.
The timing of the new venture has been speeded up to coincide with the AFL kickoff season. DraftStars will become the most advanced DFS platform down under and will be the exclusive official DFS partner for the AFL. Players will get the opportunity to compete with their peers for real money prizes as well as compete in free games.
CEO of Fox Sports Patrick Delany was delighted at the launch of DraftStars and said,” As Australia’s sport leader with a dedicated AFL channel and coverage of every round LIVE and with no ad-breaks in-play, millions of AFL fans already delve into the game with our broadcast and digital platforms every day. Draftstars is a natural extension of the way we connect with Australians’ passion for sport, bringing together our broadcast credentials with CrownBet’s gaming expertise to allow AFL fans to immerse themselves in the sport in a whole new way.”
CEO of DraftStars echoed Delany’s sentiments and said,” As Australians, we love our sport, we love to compete and we love to test our knowledge of sports against our mates. Anyone who lives and breathes AFL will love Draftstars for the exciting and engaging digital sporting experience our platform will deliver. Draftstars is a game-changing product, offering massive guaranteed prize pools and a range of games to suit any player, from the sports fanatic to the beginner. If you love the competitive grit and excitement of live sport, you’re going to love Draftstars.”
