The Coalition for Fantasy Sports has officially announced several new members to its ranks.

Betr, a sports gaming and sports media company, and Dabble, a daily fantasy sports operator based in Austin, are the two newest members of the Coalition for Fantasy Sports.

Betr and Dabble join PrizePicks and Underdog Fantasy as members of the coalition. The coalition works to protect fantasy sports players, promote innovation, ensure responsible play, identify best practices, and encourage growth of the daily fantasy sports market.

Memberships now official

Both Betr and Dabble were mentioned as members last month in the Coalition for Fantasy Sports’ official announcement of J.T. Foley as its first executive director, but the partnerships did not become official until today.

“The coalition is thrilled to welcome Dabble to the Coalition for Fantasy Sports,” Foley said in a press release. “Their innovative approach and commitment to the fantasy sports community aligns perfectly with our mission. I’m excited to work with Tom and the Dabble team to drive progress and growth in the industry.”

Dabble has expanded from an Australia company in 2020 to operating in the U.S. since 2023.

Betr, founded in 2022 by Joey Levy and Jake Paul, recently announced new market access deals for online sportsbook and casino in Pennsylvania and for online sportsbook in Colorado and Kentucky. It has secured market access in Indiana and applied for a sports betting license in Maryland. It’s also currently live in Ohio and Virginia with its beta product.

The company launched its real money fantasy sports product, Betr Picks, ahead of the 2023 NFL season.

“We are excited to announce Betr’s addition to the Coalition for Fantasy Sports,” Levy said in a release. “The Coalition has served as an effective advocate for consumer choice and fairness in the fantasy marketplace and we’re happy to help further that advocacy. We support their mission and hope our addition will increase the weight of the Coalition’s voice.”

Betr is on track to launch V1 of its sportsbook ahead of the 2024 NFL season.

On the heels of new executive director

Dabble and Betr joined the Coalition for Fantasy Sports several weeks after the organization named Foley as its first executive director.

Foley previously spent 17 years with the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, most recently servicing as its vice president of government relations. He will work closely with the coalition to promote innovation and responsible gaming policies, enhance consumer protections, and encourage growth of the daily fantasy sports market.

“I’m thrilled to join the Coalition for Fantasy Sports,” Foley said in a press release. “We will work with member companies to create the laws we need to grow this industry. Our member companies are leading on consumer protections and eager to share what we know with emerging DFS providers so that we can establish and preserve a safe and legal ecosystem.”

According to the coalition, Foley will “work to drive competition and innovation in the fantasy sports market and promote continuous improvement and choice in fantasy sports offerings.” He will also advocate for policies that benefit fantasy sports players and operators.
