If you have watched NBCSN at all, you will have undoubtedly come across the Drone Racing League.
The sport has been growing, with the rise in popularity of drones around the world. Now, the DRL has an official betting partner in DraftKings, and it will become the first aerial sporting event to have live markets on a betting app.

This weekend is the culmination of the 2020 DRL Allianz World Championship season, and DraftKings/DRL will have live events starting Friday night on Twitter to promote the new partnership. Saturday at 4:30 p.m. EST, the racing will commence, with coverage on NBC, Facebook, and Twitter all weekend.
“The sky is now the limit for DRL fans to get skin in the game, and we’re thrilled to partner with DraftKings to transform our high-speed race competition into the ultimate sport to bet on,” DRL President Rachel Jacobson said. “The opportunity for us to elevate our engagement through all forms of gaming and gambling will only increase as mobile betting becomes more adopted across the country.”

DraftKings Chief Business Officer Ezra Kucharz is excited to have the company partnered with another up and coming American sport, to provide both pre-race wagers and live in-race bets as well. And with DraftKings, which is maybe the number one destination for bettors to go for niche sports like cycling, floorball, handball, surfing, table tennis, and volleyball among others, DRL was a perfect fit for the new venture.
“DRL is scaling their business as fast as their drone races, and we’re excited to be flying with them given DRL’s thrilling, innovative racing events are perfect for the customized wagering offerings we can create,” Kucharz said. “Our expertise in sports betting combined with DRL’s stats-packed competition will make this a fun and seamless opportunity to engage their avid audience along with tech-savvy, adrenaline-loving sports fans.”

Right now, DRL wagering is legal in five states: Colorado, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Tennessee, and West Virginia. But there are regulatory approvals pending in other states, so hopefully people can wager once the 2021 season gets underway.
