Fanatics set for sportsbook launch in Massachusetts


The Massachusetts Gaming Commission (MGC) unanimously approved the company’s certificate of operations of FBG Enterprises Opco, LLC ( Fanatics ).

The operator passed all inspections and the MGC’s sports wagering division recommended the approval of the certificate.

Bruce Band, Director of Sports Betting for the MGC, said Fanatics Betting and Gaming indicated it would “begin operations by the end of the month.”

The state launched online sports betting on March 10, with six sports betting operators live on day one. Last week, Betr became the seventh to launch in MA.

The approval comes just days after Fanatics announced a $150 million purchase of Australian-based PointsBet’s U.S. assets.
