Fanduel history

On July 21, 2009, Lesley Eccles, Nigel Eccles, Rob Jones, Tom Griffiths, and Chris Stafford founded FanDuel. The company branched out from Hubdub, a news prediction platform, with a funding round of $1.2 million from Scottish Enterprise and Pentech Ventures.

The group FanDuel hosted first time in 2010, the “FanDuel Fantasy Football Championship (FFFC).” The ten participants were entered by their winnings in an NFL qualifying tournament. The first prize was $25,000, with a total prize fund of $40,000—Flutter’s $4.2 billion purchase of FanDuel.

According to FanDuel, Flutter Entertainment has agreed to expand its stake in FanDuel for $4.175 billion.

According to Paul Martino, in 2018, Bullpen Capital’s founder and managing director, Flutter (formerly Paddy Power Betfair), bought FanDuel for around $559 million.

The group FanDuel became a massive success in the last few years. It was uncertain how the company’s value would be calculated. Early entrants, like Martino’s company, faced a disaster scenario.

“The fact that they had to acquire at close to market value, I’m sure all of us early investors can breathe a bit of a sigh of relief as a result of that,” Martino said. “I think it’s probably a small discount … but $11.5 billion and $559 million is a pretty big difference.”

Previously Flutter had committed to buying out Fastball’s share by 2023, which would cost it considerably more than FanDuel’s market value of over $11 billion.

According to Martino, the group FanDuel is currently valued at $14 billion. The company was growing up rapidly and betting in the U.S. by spending extra money.

Currently, Amy Howe is the president of FanDuel.
