The former NFL wide receiver has signed a sponsorship deal with Draftster.com, a leading daily fantasy sports platform. This endorsement deal further confirms the attraction of professional athletes to this relatively new sector.
“We are very excited and proud to be working with a player the caliber of Terrell Owens. He has an edge that fans relate to and players are going to love having the opportunity to engage and challenge him in our contests,” said David Peterson, Draftster, CEO.
According to the Fantasy Sports Trade Association (FSTA), 32 million Americans spend $467 per-person or about $15 billion in total playing. Of that, roughly $11 billion is spent on football. That is a 13% gain from IPSO Public Affairs’ 2013 study.
“I’m very excited about joining the Draftster family. I spent a lot of time researching DFS platforms and can say they offer the best user experience I’ve seen,” said Terrell Owens. “I am really looking forward to challenging other players and expect to keep my name (terrellowens) in the top of the standings.”
“Athletes are the sole reason professional sports exist. Having them as an integral part of the Draftster experience is both a strategic decision and an issue of quality for us. We have great things planned and we’re stacking our decks for success,” commented Peterson.
Draftster.com launched in the second quarter of 2014 with daily MLB contests and has quickly grown to be a major player in the daily fantasy sports sector. The site currently offers daily and weekly contests for NFL and College Football, and will release both NHL and NBA contests in the month of November.
