The collaboration, which has been dubbed a “groundbreaking contract” for the football club, sees Fubo become the official sports betting partner of the Houston Dynamo. This agreement will have fuboTV prominently displayed on the front of both the Houston Dynamo FC and Houston Dash’s 2022 National Women’s Soccer League training tops.

Beginning with the next 2022 MLS and NWSL seasons, the collaboration will promote Fubo Gaming through an integrated marketing campaign, a presence on the club’s television and podcast programming, and activation throughout the club’s digital and social platforms, as well as other marketing assets. In addition, Fubo will have “prominent placement” throughout PNC Stadium, including name rights to the northeast corner’s gate entrance.

In addition to this partnership, Fubo Gaming has signed a multi-year market access agreement with the club, pending the passage of sports betting legislation in the state of Texas. Following the bill’s possible passing, the business plans to launch its Fubo Sportsbook in the Lone Star State, subject to regulatory permissions.

“This relationship is a big step forward for our team, and I am honored to welcome fuboTV and Fubo Gaming to the Dynamo and Dash family,” Houston Dynamo FC president John Walker commented. Fubo Gambling is a pioneer in the sports gaming business and will shape the way we enjoy sports in the years to come.
