FanDuel to Open an Office in Atlanta

 

FanDuel, a subsidiary of Flutter Entertainment PLC, has announced that it will invest at least $15 million to open an office in Atlanta that would be focused on product development and technology operations. The company also announced that it will hire more than 900 people for the Atlanta office.

FanDuel is the leading online sports betting and gambling company in the US. Its platform is available in 10 states but not in Georgia. State lawmakers this year balked at efforts to legalize sports gambling in Georgia, despite a push from Atlanta’s four professional sports teams, who said it would deepen fan engagement.

FanDuel also operates physical sports betting locations in some states with casinos. Sports gambling in some form, sometimes only inside casinos, is allowed in 11 states and the District of Columbia.

The company has more than 12 million customers in the US with headquarters in New York and other offices in Los Angeles; Orlando, Florida; and Edinburgh and Glasgow in Scotland.

The company said it will look to Georgia’s public and private universities to create courses to train future employees and actively recruit on local campuses. FanDuel also said it would work to provide resume-building workshops and mentorships for local residents seeking to become employees.
