(PRESS RELEASE) -- Today, Boyd Gaming and FanDuel Group announced the grand opening of the FanDuel Sportsbook at Valley Forge Casino Resort – the first FanDuel Sportsbook in the state of Pennsylvania.

Conveniently located near Philadelphia, the FanDuel Sportsbook will officially open to the public on Wednesday, 13 March 2019, just in time for March Madness. FanDuel’s new 1,800 square foot sports betting retail location will be conveniently located near the main entrance of the casino.

“Opening the FanDuel Sportsbook at Valley Forge Casino Resort is the start of FanDuel Group’s retail sports betting expansion in partnership with Boyd Gaming,” said Matt King, CEO, FanDuel Group. “Our experience operating the top sportsbook in New Jersey at the Meadowlands Racetrack will serve us well as we enter Philadelphia and compete for customers in an area with some of the most passionate and knowledgeable sports fans.”

“In less than a year, FanDuel has established itself as the leading sports-betting brand in a competitive New Jersey market,” said Keith Smith, President and CEO of Boyd Gaming. “We look forward to bringing their market-leading product to Valley Forge, and are confident the FanDuel Sportsbook will serve as a powerful draw for new and existing customers throughout the Philadelphia market.”

“We are excited to partner with FanDuel Group and bring a sports betting experience to our guests,” said Dave Zerfing, General Manager of Valley Forge Casino Resort. “Located next to our gaming floor, which has recently been expanded with 250 new slot machines, we take pride in continuing to enhance our amenities and offerings here at Valley Forge Casino Resort.”

The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place Wednesday, 13 March at 12 p.m. followed by a ceremonial first bet from Brent Celek, former Tight End from the World Champion Philadelphia Eagles.

The FanDuel Sportsbook will feature seven teller windows, 29 video displays (televisions and odds screens), two sports tickers and seating for more than 30 customers. FanDuel will provide its first class risk and trading platform and manage the location in partnership with Boyd Gaming and Valley Forge Casino Resort.
