FanDuel has inked a deal with One Championship, a Singaporean combat sports media company, to bring martial events to the newly launched FanDuel TV network. This partnership will feature Asia primetime events and officially kicks off on January 20.
FanDuel TV will give viewers an early preview of the content to come, also airing One 164: Pacio vs. Brooks on December 3. This match-up is between Joshua Pacio, current One Strawweight World Champion and Jarred Brooks, who is ranked as number one in this category.
FanDuel CCO Mike Raffensperger commented: “We're eager to continue expanding the variety of content we're offering at FanDuel TV to introduce our audience to emerging sports.
“We've long respected the content the One Championship team is producing and are looking forward to bringing their action to our audience through FanDuel TV and FanDuel+."
One Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong commented: “We are thrilled to join the FanDuel TV lineup and give our passionate U.S. audience yet another way to engage with One Championship.
"Having a quality partner in FanDuel will help raise the profile of our company in the region and provide their viewers with action-packed martial arts events like they have never seen before."
The new content offering joins a choc-a-bloc lineup for the inaugural network offerings of FanDuel TV, which includes Kay Adams’ morning show ‘Up & Adams’. Other broadcasts will include the NBA-centric show ‘Run It Back’ with US sports pundits Michelle Beadle, Chandler Parsons and Shams Charania.
FanDuel TV and FanDuel+ are also airing more than 3,000 hours of live sports including the National Basketball League (NBL) (Australia's professional league), the Chinese Basketball League, as well as the French and German pro leagues.
These live sports broadcasting are part of a licensing agreement with Sportradar.
