FanDuel Group, part of Flutter Entertainment plc, has announced the latest instalment of its FanFest celebration, presented by Lionsgate’s American Underdog at WestWorld in Scottsdale, Arizona.
This live event experience, taking place on December 11, will feature exclusive performances from Grammy Award-winning hip-hop icon Nelly and musician/DJ Gryffin. The celebration will honor the upcoming release of Lionsgate’s highly anticipated motion picture American Underdog, in theatres Christmas Day.
Fans can look forward to special appearances by the film’s star Zachary Levi, Arizona sports legends, sports themed carnival games, food trucks, and more.
The film stars Levi as Kurt Warner who rose from supermarket stock boy to become a two-time NFL MVP, Super Bowl Champion, and Hall of Fame quarterback. The biopic’s inspiration, Warner will also attend FanFest as he and Zachary Levi participate in an interactive Q&A session with FanDuel on-air talent Lisa Kerney and go head-to-head in a quarterback challenge for charity.
Throughout the day, fans will also be able to participate in a variety of other activities, including a Q&A session and meet-and-greet with former Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin and Hall of Fame running back Edgerrin James.
