Fubo Gaming, a subsidiary of sports-first live TV streaming platform fuboTV Inc, has launched the Fubo Sportsbook in the state of Arizona in partnership with the Ak-Chin Indian Community.

Grand Canyon State sports fans can now place wagers on live professional and collegiate sporting events using the mobile app or on the Fubo Sportsbook website.

Scott Butera, President of Fubo Gaming, commented: “We are honored to partner with our first Native American tribe, the Ak-Chin Indian Community, to launch our market-defining sportsbook within the great state of Arizona.

“In less than a year of establishing Fubo Gaming, we brought our sports betting platform to passionate sports communities across two states and look forward to continuing introducing our unique product to many more consumers.”

Fubo Sportsbook is a sports wagering platform combined with a live TV streaming experience. By integrating with fuboTV, the mobile app delivers personalized omniscreen experiences that turn passive viewers into active participants.

Its proprietary feature, Watching Now, uses fuboTV’s first-party user data to engage participants by recommending relevant bets based upon what they are streaming even as they change the channel.

David Gandler, Co-founder and CEO of fuboTV, added: “Fubo Sportsbook is a major pillar of fuboTV’s mission to integrate interactivity into our live TV streaming platform and define a new category of interactive sports and entertainment television.

“I’m very proud of how quickly the Fubo Gaming team has brought Fubo Sportsbook to market: from our announcement to expand into online sports wagering to the launch of Fubo Sportsbook in Arizona, our second state, all in the same year.”

Robert Miguel, Chairman of the Ak-Chin Indian Community, stated: “We’re so excited this day is finally here. The Ak-Chin Indian Community is proud to work with an industry-leading partner like Fubo Gaming in the development of its mobile app for online sports wagering, and we look forward to providing our customers the premier gaming experience they’ve come to expect.”

Last month, Fubo debuted its sportsbook in the US in the state of Iowa.
