It is an exciting time for the Phoenix Suns as they made the playoffs for the first time in over a decade and announced a partnership with FanDuel Sportsbook.

Even though the team’s last NBA Finals appearance was in 1993, when they lost to the Chicago Bulls, things are looking good for them to finally return to the championship in the near future.

The Phoenix Suns And FanDuel Partnership

The bill legalizing sports betting in Arizona allows for sportsbooks to create a partnership with a local sports team to open a retail sportsbook and offer online sports betting. The catch? Only ten licenses are awarded to local sports franchises. The other ten licenses go to tribal-owned casinos in the state.

FanDuel is one of the leading sports betting competitors and inked a deal with the Phoenix Suns to create a long-term partnership which includes a sportsbook at the Phoenix Suns Arena. The sportsbook lounge is expected to be over 6,300 square feet complete with seating and will be open daily. Self-service and full-service kiosks will also be available, making it easy to place a bet.

You can also use the FanDuel app inside the arena as they have partnered with Verizon Wireless to give 5G network access, allowing the app to be reliable and efficient.
