FanDuel, the US based fantasy sports provider and bookmaker, has offered a range of fantasy contests for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019. FanDuel will also contribute $1000 to the Women’s Sports Foundation (WSF) for every goal Team USA scores during the tournament, in addition to a $10,000 initial donation.
To celebrate the Women’s World Cup and Team USA, FanDuel is partnering with Zach Ertz, Philadelphia Eagles two-time Pro Bowl tight end and husband of U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team superstar Julie Ertz. Ertz will be entering several daily fantasy contests on FanDuel throughout the tournament.
“When the USWNT won the World Cup title in 2015, it was a historic sporting event and a breakthrough moment for women’s soccer and female athletics. We’re excited to see what this year’s tournament has in store and are proud to support women’s sports and be the Women’s World Cup fantasy leader,” Andy Giancamilli, MD of FanDuel said.
“Our Foundation is pleased to partner with organizations who, like us, want to empower girls and women to reach their potential in sport and in life. As FanDuel’s exclusive charity partner for the Women’s World Cup tournament, we’re grateful to receive the proceeds from goals scored. What a great added benefit for cheering on team USA!” Deborah Antione, CEO of WSF said.
