DraftKings has debuted its second retail sportsbook location in The Granite State, after introducing DraftKings Sportsbook at Manchester alongside the New Hampshire Lottery and South Side Tavern.

"DraftKings has been a great partner for a number of years and we are excited to expand this relationship as sports betting grows rapidly in IL", said Crane Kenney, President of Business Operations, Chicago Cubs.

Recently, the longtime charity gaming site completed a $2.5 m redesign to implement a range of precautionary steps to help prevent COVID-19 from spreading.

"An increasing number of sports fans want to integrate sports betting into their game experience, and we're excited to be one of the first to engage in developing a retail sportsbook at a professional sports venue", Crane Kenney, president of business operations for the Cubs said in an official announcement. Employees and guests are required to wear masks, and employees throughout the day disinfect gaming machines to provide a safe and clean experience.

DraftKings, the New Hampshire Lottery's exclusive sports betting operator, opened last month with the DraftKings Sportsbook at The Brook the first sports betting retail location in the State.

While an exact location for the sportsbook is not yet determined, it could either be inside of the ballpark or outside in Wrigleyville.

"We are proud to reveal DraftKings' latest collaborative effort with the New Hampshire Lottery - DraftKings Sportsbook at Manchester".

"Our New Hampshire customers continue to get to know the DraftKings brand, which has a reputation for a world-class and intuitive betting experience".

In 2016, the Chicago Cubs made history again when the team won its first World Series in 108 years, ending the longest championship drought in North American sports. A ribbon cutting ceremony at DraftKings Sportsbook at Manchester is planned for September 13, 2020.

NASDAQ:DKNG has had quite the week as the future of the sports betting industry in IL became a little bit clearer. DraftKings' daily fantasy sports product is available in 8 countries internationally with 15 distinct sports categories. Players located in the Wrigleyville area will have online access, able to place sports bets while in the area outside the stadium.

DraftKings has signed a multi-year deal to become the official sports betting and daily fantasy partner of Major League Baseball (MLB) team the Chicago Cubs.
