DraftKings, FanDuel Merger Terminated

A letter from DraftKings:

Dear AmGolferBlog,

Today we formally terminated our merger with FanDuel and will withdraw litigation from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). This means we will move forward as a separate company, which we believe is the best course in the interest of you - our customers and avid sports fans.

We want to reassure you that you will not notice any changes to your account or your experience with us as a result of this decision. We will continue to offer best-in-class contests, prizes, and offerings to our players. We will continue to focus our resources and expertise on enhancing our products and features so we can deliver the exceptional sports entertainment experience you have always had and love with DraftKings.

DraftKings remains the preeminent platform in the daily fantasy sports industry. As a result, we are well-positioned to serve as a global hub linking fans to the sports, teams, players and game content they love.

This is an exciting time to be a sports fan and daily fantasy player. As we gear up for another successful NFL season, we will continue to put you - the sports fan - at the center of everything we do. We are excited to make this football season the best one yet with new products, innovative features, and exciting contests ready to be rolled out soon.

If you have any further questions about this announcement, please visit our dedicated frequently asked questions section on the DraftKings website.

Thank you for your continued loyalty throughout this process. We have the best fans in the world and could not have done any of this without you.
