Sportito has built on its recent deal with Fulham FC by becoming the ‘Official Fantasy Sports Partner’ for Premier League side Burnley FC.
Sportito, the first DFS company to sign with the ‘Clarets’, offers players the chance to win real cash prizes every day by choosing which players they would have in their fantasy team, without having to worry about a salary cap restriction.
The ‘dynamic’ partnership will also enable fans to participate in competitions to win Burnley signed merchandised, match day tickets and other fan experiences with the club and its players.
Anthony Fairclough, Director of Commercial Affairs for Burnley Football Club, commented: “This is the very first Fantasy Sports partner the club have had and I’m sure it will be a hit with our fans. As part of the launch, Sportito are offering a free £5 bet, which fans can take advantage of. I am sure this will be a great partnership for the club, Sportito and more importantly our fan base.”
Riccardo Mittiga, CEO of Sportito, said: “We are proud to have Burnley as the first Premier League Football Club on board. Burnley have come a long way from being one of the founding members of English Football League and are now soaring in the Premier League, beating some of the top teams in the division.”
He added: “One of the reasons we chose Burnley FC was the passion the fans have for their club. With this partnership, we want to connect with these fans to bring a true Fantasy Football experience with Sportito.”
A DFS platform operating in the UK with a gambling license from the UKGC, Sportito offers numerous competitions featuring players across leagues such as the Premier League, Championship, Bundesliga and La Liga. Click here to access the dedicated webpage for Burnley FC fans.
