Scout Gaming launches fantasy sports platform Fanteam across US


Scout Gaming has launched daily fantasy sports platform Fanteam in the US, in a deal that will see Fanteam become available in the states for the first time.

Fanteam, which first launched in 2015, will now be available in 20 states, including California, Florida, Georgia, Minnesota and Texas.

Its site will give bettors access to B2B liquidity platform Scout Gaming Network, which offers $20m worth of prizes each year.

The site has grown to be the largest European daily fantasy sports site on the market.

Fanteam will offer a set of daily fantasy sports products, which will allow patrons to place bets on a variety of competitions – from top-tier competitions to local leagues.

“We have seen an increased demand for our products and has decided that time is right for an US entry,” said Andreas Ternström, CEO of Scout Gaming.

“Since we took the decision last year to increase the effort and focus we are putting on Fanteam, this opportunity has arisen. After DraftKings and FanDuel, we offer the largest prize pools on a global basis, for European sports such as soccer, we are the global market leader.”

In October Scout Gaming announced the addition of Betano to its network of operators.

Earlier this year, video game lifestyle brand Razer agreed to partner with Scout Gaming to create a fantasy esports app.
