Second-tier English soccer side Fulham FC have announced Sportito as their first official fantasy sports partner.
Sportito is a new fantasy sports service which runs daily, rather than seasonal, competitions. Customers have access to comprehensive, up to the minute data and compete to win cash prizes.
The partnership will run to the completion of the 2016/17 Championship season.
Financial details have not been confirmed.
Fulham’s chief revenue officer, Casper Stylsvig, said: “Sportito is an innovative new fantasy sports brand and one that I am happy to welcome as an official partner of Fulham. We are working hard to engage with new organisations that share our desire for an exciting collaboration, which can be mutually successful. We are confident therefore that we can assist in Sportito’s objectives and drive Fulham FC fans and the wider football community to sign up to and play the game online”
“We are more than happy to partner up with Fulham FC, one of the oldest football clubs in the UK with a fanbase spread throughout the UK and worldwide,” added Riccardo Mittiga, chief executive officer at Sportito. “It is a great opportunity for us to introduce Sportito to Whites fans and engage with them.”
Fulham FC are eighth in the EFL Championship, having won ten of their opening 25 games. They next compete against local rivals Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road on 21st January.
