Eagles and DraftKings Announce Official Partnership
The Philadelphia Eagles and DraftKings announced their official partnership today making DraftKings the team’s official daily fantasy sports partner and official sports betting partner.
The partnership comes after the Eagles and Fox Bet announced a similar partnership just a few weeks ago. With sports gambling on the rise, specifically in Pennsylvania, more partnerships with Philadelphia sports teams and sportsbooks will continue to happen.
Speaking of partnerships, The Liberty Line announced yesterday that we’ll be partnering with Fox Sports PHL The Gambler and bringing you Liberty Line Radio every Saturday on the radio:
The announcement followed an extremely busy 48 hours for The Liberty Line after I found myself back on the local news circuit talking about our Bad Things Happen In Philadelphia T-Shirts that have went viral across the internet.
Anyways, here’s the official Eagles Press Release regarding the DrafKings Partnership:
