The world’s biggest Daily Fantasy Sports website on Tuesday announced it had added fantasy golf ahead of its merger with Boston-based DraftKings.

Yahoo Sports reported on the addition.

Taken together, EPL soccer (which FanDuel recently added) and pro golf suggest that FanDuel is making itself look more like DraftKings in anticipation of the time when the companies will slim to one platform. (The companies have not been specific about their product plans, but once they combine, it’s highly unlikely they will keep operating two separately branded apps.)

DraftKings has long offered more sports than FanDuel: both have NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL, but DraftKings also offers golf, mixed martial arts, Nascar, and soccer (for English Premier League, Champions League, and MLS.

CEO Nigel Eccles told Yahoo Finance. “We had been looking at golf for over a year. We were mindful of the regulatory environment, but now we have states passing laws and really setting the boundaries of what we can and can’t do. We think there’s a golf product we can do that would be compliant with that and be an awesome experience. We took our time on it.”

80 percent of FanDuel’s current revenue is derived from the NFL and NBA.

The merger of FanDuel and DraftKings was set to take place in the end of 2017.
