Boston-based sports contest provider DraftKings has launched its first daily and weekly fantasy sport-related contests to the UK market.

This launch has been pushed back from October, then December, to early February. While the company had acquired the required license from the UK Gambling Commission in August, technicalities had to be finalised.

These include details such as whether players would share player pools with North American players or not. : “DraftKings is officially the biggest DFS football provider in the world and will offer some healthy competition between players in North America and the UK,” stated DraftKings.

Currently, products for the UK market are not available on desktop but are available for both Android and iOS devices. DraftKings has reportedly partner up with several English football clubs, including Arsenal, Liverpool and Watford.
