NEW YORK & MEMPHIS, TN – November 2, 2020 — Today, the Memphis Grizzlies and FanDuel Group announced a multi-year partnership, making FanDuel an official sports betting partner and the exclusive official daily fantasy partner of the Grizzlies. The deal marks the Grizzlies’ first partnership with a sports betting operator and FanDuel’s first partnership with an NBA team for sports betting.
