Yahoo Adds Daily Fantasy Soccer; Signs Revenue Sharing Deal

The daily fantasy sports industry received a resounding amount of attention when Yahoo launched its own daily fantasy platform in July. Right now, Yahoo offers a daily fantasy baseball competition, but will add American football, basketball and hockey offerings when the major professional sports leagues resume play. However, the most exciting news for Yahoo may have nary a focus on the 50 U.S. states. It comes in the form of a partnership that will allow Yahoo to quickly expand its reach in the world of soccer and get a leg up on competitor DraftKings, which also seems to be positioning itself for expansion abroad.


Yahoo’s Strategic Play Takes A Kick At DraftKings

It is a smart, quick strategic partnership that could score huge traffic for Mondogoal and their existing partnerships with clubs like Liverpool, Chelsea and AS Roma, and it gives Yahoo a much-needed operational partner to operate a game in a sport they don’t have a platform for, while they continue to push the already lucrative NFL and coming NBA market where they already have traction in the States.

Daily Fantasy Sports For Soccer In Europe Could Explode Quickly, And Here’s Why

Dream Teams: Professional sports bets on the changing nature of fandom.

Mondogoal is based on the Isle of Man and has a license from the United Kingdom Gambling Commission. “The argument against us working is that if you go to Old Trafford or Wembley you can order bangers and mash in one window, and then you take one step to the right and you can bet on the game,” Feldman said. “But our counterargument is: It’s a developed betting culture. There’s no stigma attached. It’s social—they bet with friends. A certain portion of money is set aside for gambling, and there’s been no innovation in gambling there in twenty years. A whole new game can come in.”

Can U.K. Daily Fantasy Sports Experience Rapid Growth Like U.S.?

Sports betting websites in the U.K. have been to slow to incorporate a fantasy component into their interfaces:
Below the bonnet at most, however, is also a patchwork quilt of legacy software that bumps and grinds together, preventing the implementation of any new products, let alone a fantasy one.
