After a year of operating in the UK, daily fantasy sports operator FanDuel has announced that it has shut down its UK activities.
The announcement was sent to its players via e-mail and also confirmed its market closure via Twitter.
The following message appeared on FanDunel’s UK homepage since Friday:
“You made the 2016/17 season a debut to remember. Almost £1 million was won by fantasy football enthusiasts in the UK. Thank you for your support”
“Unfortunately, we will not be offering contests in the UK this season. We hope to be back in the future, bringing you more of the games you love.”
FanDuel’s UK players have already received refunds to their accounts. Meanwhile, FanDuel competitor DraftKings remains active within the UK fantasy sports market.
