Boost Sport Experience with Wagering
The Fubo Sportsbook will provide a seamless customer experience by integrating fuboTV’s expansive offering in live sports with gaming to allow sports fans in the Keystone State to wager while watching their favorite teams.

Following previously announced market access agreements with Caesars Entertainment to bring Fubo Sportsbook to New Jersey and Indiana, as well as Casino Queen for a launch of the sportsbook in Iowa, the agreement with The Cordish Companies provides access to a fourth US jurisdiction for the mobile sportsbook.
The live sports TV streaming operator expects to begin the state-by-state rollout of Fubo Sportsbook in the fourth quarter of 2021, subject to obtaining regulatory permits in each jurisdiction.
