Sportito CEO Riccardo Mittiga has welcomed a ‘great opportunity’ to work with Fulham FC, after the DFS operator signed a deal to become the club’s first ‘Official Fantasy Sports Partner’.
Fulham FC will introduce their fans to the new Sportito fantasy sports platform, which hosts daily winning contests rather than season long contests, and promote the opportunity to connect with the team and other players through networking on social media.
The new format has also freed up fans when choosing players to draft for their teams, after removing salary cap restrictions which proved irritating for fantasy players. Cash prizes and high quality real time data are also key features of the company’s innovative approach to traditional fantasy sports.
Casper Stylsvig, CRO at Fulham Football Club, said: “Sportito is an innovative new gaming brand and one that I am happy to welcome as an official partner of Fulham.”
He added that it’s ‘an exciting collaboration, which can be mutually successful’. Moreover, he said ‘we are confident that we can assist in Sportito’s objectives and drive Fulham FC fans and the wider football community to sign up to and play the game online’.
Riccardo Mittiga expressed his confidence in bringing success to the partnership: “We are more than happy to partner up with Fulham FC, one of the oldest Football Clubs in the UK with a fan base spread throughout the UK and worldwide. It is a great opportunity for us to introduce Sportito to Whites fans and engage with them to show how exciting it is to play fantasy sports and win real cash on Sportito.”
Having launched in August 2016, Sportito is a DFS site launched with a gambling license from the UK Gambling Commission, which offers fantasy sports contests across all major tournaments and leagues including the Premier League, Championship and World Cup.
