FanDuel Sportsbook opens at New Meadowlands Racetrack in New Jersey

17 July 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- FanDuel Group, a leader in fantasy sports, online gaming and television content, announced the grand opening of the first-ever FanDuel Sportsbook, located at the Meadowlands Racetrack, and Tioga Downs Casino owner Jeff Gural hopes to soon bring the same exciting offering to Nichols.

FanDuel's new 5,310-square-foot sports betting retail location, which opened to the public on Saturday, 14 July, is adjacent to MetLife Stadium and is the closest in proximity to New York City, making it the go-to sports betting destination in the northeast.

“The opening of our first sportsbook at the Meadowlands is reflective of our commitment to providing sports fans a best-in-class experience,” said Matt King, CEO, FanDuel Group. “We’re excited to partner with Jeff Gural and the team at Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment on what we believe will be the premier sports betting experience for fans in New Jersey, New York, and across the northeast region.”

The FanDuel Sportsbook will feature bets on all major U.S. sports, including professional baseball, soccer, football, basketball, golf, boxing and motorsports racing. At opening, the location will initially feature 10 teller windows and 27 televisions and accommodate up to 490 people. By the start of the football season, the FanDuel Sportsbook will expand to include 15 tellers, 65 television screens and a capacity of close to 650 people. Customers can watch the games and dine on incredible food in a state of the art lounge.

Mr. Gural looks forward to bringing this opportunity to Tioga Downs as soon as New York State passes and writes legislation to allow for sports betting on property.

“Partnering with FanDuel Group and our proximity to New York City puts us in prime position to capitalize on the seemingly endless opportunities around sports betting,” said Mr. Gural, Chairman & CEO of Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment, as well as American Racing & Entertainment. “Opening our doors on the eve of the biggest soccer game in the world is just the start. We look forward to enhancing the game day experience for local fans, as well as visitors from around the world.”

FanDuel Sportsbook retail location will be open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. ET to 1 a.m. ET; Friday from 10 a.m. ET to 2 a.m.; Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m.; and Sunday from 9 a.m. – 1 a.m. ET.
