Walt Disney Acquires Stake in DraftKings
Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Walt Disney Company has secured a stake in DraftKings, daily fantasy sports-turned-sportsbook, as part of its acquisition of 21st Century Fox.

Disney secured the stake as part of its $71.3 billion purchase of the film and entertainment business. The revelations come just a few weeks after Disney CEO Bob Iger said Disney doesn’t “intend to go into the gambling business.”

“We’ve already done some things that we would integrate it into our programming, but not to the extent that we would be facilitating gambling as an entity. In other words, we’ll provide programming that will, I guess, be designed to enlighten people who are betting on sports. But that’s as far as we would go,” Iger said on a conference.

Disney also intends to use the studio to have a presence at sports betting events that are hosted in Las Vegas. NHL’s Golden Knights and the NFL’s Raiders will move to a stadium just off the Las Vegas Strip in 2020. On the call with analysts, Iger pointed to NFL Sunday Ticket and said there has been “some exploration as to whether there was an opportunity there.”

“I think we all believe that there are opportunities to strengthen our relationship with them,” Iger said.

‘Daily Number’ Reaches Exclusive Partnership With Floyd Mayweather

Daily Number, the hottest new daily fantasy sports app, today announced its exclusive partnership with legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather. This announcement was delivered as a fight promotion “pump fake” that put the boxing world on notice and signaled the start of an exclusive partnership between the crown jewel of daily fantasy sports and one of the most famous boxers in history. Daily Number is founded by successful entrepreneur Tom McAuley.

To officially announce this partnership, Daily Number worked closely with Mayweather and Connor Kroll, both of whom have joined the company as equity partners along with Co-Founder and All-Pro NFL Cornerback Richard Sherman, to covertly orchestrate a pseudo fight promotion aimed at shocking the sports world into believing one of the most successful boxers of all time was coming out of retirement. Mayweather ignited the rumor mill by posting a teaser video on his social media accounts on Monday, teasing a big announcement. Today, Mayweather made his much-anticipated big announcement with another video on social media. In the video, the global sports icon held a fake press conference to announce his exclusive partnership with Daily Number.

“I’m excited to announce to the world that The Money Team is now Team Daily Number,” said Mayweather. “You’re talking about the highest paid athlete of all time. It doesn’t take me 10 years to collect a couple hundred million like those guys playing baseball. Daily Number and my brand together is a guaranteed home run.”

The artificial fight promotion is just the beginning for Daily Number, which will be rolling out unique content over the next year featuring Floyd MayweatherRichard ShermanAntonio BrownPaul Pierce and more.

“Daily Number is just going to keep punching you in the mouth,” said McAuley. “Right when you think we’ve stretched the limits of what is possible for an early stage company, we’re going to hit you with the next thing. It truly is an exciting place to be, where the craziest idea you can imagine is executable. That’s 100% a factor of the incredible people that have bought into what we’re doing.”

About Daily Number
Daily Number initially launched in beta in the fall of 2018 behind the endorsement of Sherman, who is the company’s chief brand ambassador, in addition to being a co-founder with McAuley. The company’s patent-pending fantasy sports platform empowers fans to select their own degree of difficulty and subsequent prize, by picking any combination of players – from a lineup filled with all-stars to a roster comprised of role players – to simply beat a preset target score known as the Daily Number. The platform provides unmatched control and enhanced transparency for DFS players throughout the United States.

In addition, the company is also building a lifestyle brand that is unique to the sports gaming industry and will be rolling out additional games over the next year.

Daily Number is available to play on the web and for download on iTunes & Google Play Stores and features daily fantasy opportunities for the NFL, NBA, MLB, and PGA. After being founded in the fall of 2018, the company has been featured in Sports Illustrated, ESPN and CBS Sports.
