The Orlando Magic announced Tuesday they've entered into a Champions of the Community partnership agreement with FanDuel, a New York-based company which offers one-day fantasy sports gaming opportunities.

"We are honored to have FanDuel join our family," Magic CEO Alex Martins said in a statement announcing the partnership. "This is yet another example of an innovative company showing its commitment to the Magic."

"This partnership helps us not only build out the FanDuel brand, but also ensures that we can start to give back to the community in a much bigger way than we’ve been able to do before," said FanDuel CEO Nigel Eccles. "We are very excited to be working with Magic on this and feel they are a natural fit for us."

As part of the deal, FanDuel will enjoy "prominent exposure" at Amway Center, the Magic's home arena, "including on-cout exposure." FanDuel will also sponsor the venue's North Club Bar.

FanDuel joins Chase, Florida Hospital, Geico, Harris, PepsiCo, Southwest Airlines, and Walt Disney World as Orlando's Champions of the Community partners.
