DraftKings on Tuesday announced it will host the first ever “Fantasy Sports Fest” at Gillette Stadium this August (exact dates not immediately known at the time this was going to press).
The event will be open to players of DraftKings' fantasy games, and tickets range from $99 to $199.
New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has confirmed he will be taking part in the event.
The event will also allow DraftKings users to get do on-field drills, and it will feature educational sessions about improving fantasy sports skills.
"It's a pretty exciting event that we've put together for (DraftKings) players to be able to come," said Janet Holian, DraftKings' chief marketing officer. "We have some great speakers and interesting sports personalities."
The event will be open to about 1,000 people, she said.
