FanDuel CEO Matt King joked with MarketWatch that the Super Bowl should fall into the “essential travel” recommendations from the CDC.
King, the head of the New York-based bookmaker and daily fantasy sports site since 2017, is an annual attendee of the big game, but this year decided it “didn’t make sense” to go. Like millions of other NFL fans, King will be watching the Chiefs take on the Bucs on TV.
