The NY Jets have officially partnered with Fubo Sportsbook
Earlier on Wednesday, the New York Jets announced a multi-year partnership with Fubo Sportsbook, the comprehensive sports entertainment and wagering experience expected to launch sometime in the fourth quarter of 2021.
The #Jets and Fubo have come together.

The agreement makes the known yet scrappy streaming service an official sports betting partner of the Jets.
“The New York Jets is a leading sports organization with a strong base of enthusiastic and loyal fans,” said Scott Butera, President of Fubo Gaming, per an official statement. “We strongly believe in the future success of the team.”
This marks Fubo Sportsbook’s first sponsorship of a professional sports team, which, needless to say, is quite an exciting landmark for the young company.
But don’t think the Jets and even their fans don’t stand to gain from this agreement as well.
“This partnership with Fubo Sportsbook is another major step for the New York Jets in our journey to prioritize engagement with our fanbase,” said Jeff Fernandez, the team’s Vice President of Business Development and Ventures, per a team release. “With Fubo Sportsbook, Jets fans will be treated to their innovative mobile viewing and wagering platform, which will be brought to life at the dynamic new Fubo Sportsbook Lounge.”

The partnership itself is centered around the creation of this approximately 7,000 square-foot lounge at MetLife Stadium, set to debut this season (2021). It will be open to guests 21 and over.
The fans will receive “the opportunity to enjoy the look and feel of a casino-style sportsbook with betting odds integration, as well as incentives and special bonus offers.”
Additionally, fans will be able to watch every single game from around the NFL in the lounge, as well as enjoy a top-notch view of the MetLife Stadium field from the patio.
Fubo Gaming Inc., launched in 2021, claims to deliver a “hyper-personalized sports entertainment and wagering experience.” With that mission statement firmly in mind, it would appear that the Jets truly have the intention of building engagement with their fans over the long haul.
