MEMPHIS, Tenn. – The Memphis Grizzlies have announced a deal with the FanDuel Group that will make FanDuel the exclusive daily fantasy partner and official sports betting partner of the NBA franchise.

This multi-year partnership will give FanDuel access to the official Grizzlies logos and marks for FanDuel’s No.1 daily fantasy sports product and online sports betting offering.

FanDuel will also receive marketing assets such as in-arena signage at FedExForum and promoting betting services directly to Grizzlies fans on the team’s radio, television, and digital platforms.

“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,” said Mike Raffenspberger, CMO, FanDuel Group. “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.”

FanDuel will be presenting the Grizzlies’ home and away game broadcast on television with the ability to integrate their products and services to enhance the fans viewing experience at home.

The partnership between the two marks FanDuel’s first NBA betting partnership along with the Grizzlies’ first partnership with a legal sports betting operator.

“We are thrilled to have FanDuel as our first sports betting marketing partner and as our exclusive daily fantasy partner,” said Jason Wexler, President, Memphis Grizzlies. “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.”

This deal comes after online sports betting in Tennessee officially launched with FanDuel as one of the state’s regulated sports betting operators. FanDuel has its sportsbook app available today for all sports fans in the Volunteer State on any iOS or Android device.
