The Team

FanDuel is a part of the Australian Sportsbet team.

FanDuel is the premier destination for sports fans online. In 2009, FanDuel reimagined the concept of fantasy sports, giving fans the ability to play one-day fantasy sports for real cash prizes. And despite many imitators, there’s still no better place to bet on US Sports. After launching in 2018 as part of the Flutter group of brands, it didn’t take long for FanDuel to become America’s go-to for sports betting and the #1 online sportsbook. We're now growing our Melbourne team to make a place for Australians to enjoy US Sports responsibly.
