UK-licensed daily fantasy sports operator Sportito has agreed a deal to serve as the official fantasy sports partner of English Championship football club Queens Park Rangers.

The agreement runs until the end of the current 2017/18 season and enables the operator to reach QPR fans through the club’s digital channels.

Sportito will also work with QPR to offer unique fan experiences, such as meeting with players and opportunities to win match day tickets and signed merchandise.

“We are delighted to welcome QPR on board,” said Sportito CEO Riccardo Mittiga. “It's a pleasure to be the clubs first ever fantasy sports partner and Sportito will offer great opportunities to QPR fans on our platform this season.”

QPR’s commercial director Euan Inglis added: "The growth in fantasy sports over the last few years has been substantial, especially fantasy football.

“The opportunity to win daily prizes on Sportito's platform makes their proposition very exciting. We are delighted to have entered into a partnership with Sportito, as they are a fantasy sports company with big plans over the next few years"

Last season Sportito signed similar deals with Championship sides Fulham and Burnley.
