FuboTV subsidiary Fubo gaming, together with the Ak-Chin Indian Community, has launched its sportsbook in Arizona. This latest development marks the second state in which the sportsbook is available.
After last month’s Iowa launch, Fubo Sportsbook’s move into Arizona will allow sports enthusiasts, 21 years of age and above, in the Grand Canyon State to place bets on live professional and collegiate sporting events on its website or using the mobile app.
“Fubo Sportsbook is a major pillar of fuboTV’s mission to integrate interactivity into our live TV streaming platform and define a new category of interactive sports and entertainment television,” David Gandler, fuboTV co-founder and CEO, said.
“I’m very proud of how quickly the Fubo Gaming team has brought Fubo Sportsbook to market: from our announcement to expand into online sports wagering to the launch of Fubo Sportsbook in Arizona, our second state, all in the same year,” he added.
Fubo Sportsbook is by all accounts customized “to meet US Sports fans’ growing demand for interactivity through an industry-first integration of an owned-and-operated sports wagering platform with a live TV streaming experience.”
“We are honored to partner with our first Native American tribe, the Ak-Chin Indian community, to launch our market-defining sportsbook within the great state of Arizona,” Scott Butera, Fubo Gaming president, said.
“In less than a year of establishing Fubo Gaming, we brought our sports betting platform to passionate sports communities across two states and look forward to continuing introducing our unique product to many more consumers,” he added.
“We’re so excited this day is finally here. The Ak-Chin Indian Community is proud to work with an industry-leading partner like Fubo Gaming in the development of its moble app for online sports wagering, and we look forward to providing our customers the premier gaming experience they’ve come to expect,” Robert Miguel, Ak-Chin Indian Community chairman, said.
