Fubo Gaming gains Pennsylvania access via The Cordish Companies

Fubo Gaming has aligned with The Cordish Companies in an agreement which secures market access for the upcoming mobile Fubo Sportsbook in Pennsylvania.

The collaboration with the owner and operator of Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia and Live! Casino Pittsburgh provides state-wide mobile access for both sports betting and igaming. 

The launch of the Fubo Sportsbook in Pennsylvania is subject to obtaining requisite regulatory approvals.

“Partnering with Fubo Gaming to bring our guests this exciting, integrated mobile sports betting option is the natural evolution of our Live! Casino brands in Pennsylvania,” said Rob Norton, president of the Cordish Gaming Group

“Philadelphia and Pittsburgh are both iconic sports cities that are deserving of best-in-class sports betting platforms, so we look forward to working with Fubo Gaming on this new endeavor.”

Through Fubo Sportsbook, fuboTV is seeking an integration of gaming with its live sports offering, enabling consumers to wager while they watch. 

This currently has a sports offering in the Keystone State through agreements with regional sports networks NBC Sports Philadelphia (Philadelphia 76ers, Philadelphia Flyers, Philadelphia Phillies) and AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh Penguins, Pittsburgh Pirates), in addition to local and national network coverage.

“Our agreement with The Cordish Companies will bring Fubo Sportsbook to consumers in Pennsylvania, expanding our sportsbook’s reach to at least four states,” commented David Gandler, co-founder and CEO, fuboTV

“With our sportsbook, we’re looking forward to delivering a comprehensive sports entertainment experience that combines live streaming and wagering. We expect to launch Fubo Sportsbook in the fourth quarter of this year pending regulatory approvals.” 

This agreement will bring the Fubo Sportsbook to a minimum of four states following previously announced market access agreements in New Jersey and Indiana (through Caesars Entertainment) and Iowa (through Casino Queen). 

The offering is expected to begin rolling out state-by-state in the fourth quarter 2021, subject to obtaining requisite regulatory approvals in each jurisdiction. 

“Entering Pennsylvania, one of the largest sports betting and igaming makers in the US, is a significant accomplishment for our forthcoming Fubo Sportsbook which, in this market, can also include mobile casino games,” added Scott Butera, president at Fubo Gaming

“We are also excited to be partnering with Cordish who has been a leader in gaming and sports entertainment for decades.”
