(PRESS RELEASE) -- The XFL and FOX Bet
today announced a new deal that makes the mobile sports betting brand an authorized gaming operator of the league.
FOX Bet will promote and offer XFL-centric betting markets to its customers and create a special FOX Sports Super 6 game for each week of the XFL's 10-week regular season (8 Feburary - 12 April), and one for its postseason semi-finals (18 and 19 April) and Championship game (26 April). This special XFL free-to-play game will offer guaranteed cash prizes and be promoted to the FOX Sports Super 6 database of over 1 million customers each week.
"We are thrilled to be an authorized gaming operator of the XFL and part of all the excitement surrounding the league's kickoff this February," said Robin Chhabra, CEO of FOX Bet. "Just as they are reimagining the game of football in America, we at FOX Bet are reimagining the sports experience for fans across the country."
As part of the agreement, FOX Bet has the right to use the XFL's official data feed, league marks, team logos, player and coach likeness and certain league content across its FOX Bet sports betting app and FOX Sports Super 6 free-to-play game.
"FOX Bet is a leader in mobile sports wagering, and we're proud to partner with such an important player in the sports betting community," said Jeffrey Pollack, President and COO of the XFL. "We want what our fans want and legal sports betting is an important part of the fan experience that will allow them to connect more strongly with the XFL."
FOX Bet, the U.S. sports betting brand of The Stars Group, is currently available in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The FOX Sports Super 6 free-to-play game is available nationwide and gives players a chance to win hundreds of thousands of dollars each week. FOX Bet plans to expand its sports betting products into additional states as they legalize and regulate online sports betting.
