The new company will operate as FanDuel Group, and will consist of a number of industry-leading brands including FanDuel, TVG Network, Betfair Casino, and DRAFT. TVG, the top online horseracing wagering business in the US, will play a key role in the combined business as it leverages the FanDuel brand’s broad reach to bring a whole new generation of fans to racing.

The combined business will have a presence across 45 states, 8 million customers, and $265 million in annual revenue making it a leader across daily fantasy sports, horseracing wagering, and gaming ahead of the opening up of US sports betting.
