DFS Giants Stop College Games

DraftKings and FanDuel, two of the largest operators of daily fantasy sports platforms, have voluntarily suspended their contests involving college sports after months of discussions between the firms, the NCAA and its member schools, and various state legislatures. 

Company officials told ESPN the contests will end after the conclusion of the NCAA basketball championships, better known to fans as “March Madness” and the last major college fantasy sports event until fall and football season.

While the NCAA hasn’t taken a formal position on DFS games, it is opposed to all forms of gaming that include risk or entry fees – from Vegas books to office tournament pools.
