SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – The world of sports betting is one of the fastest-growing industries in the United States. Since the repeal of PAPSA in 2018, more and more sports betting companies, businesses, and platforms are popping up out of the woodwork in an attempt to be the next big thing in sports betting.

The next one up to bat this fall is FanUp.

FanUp is a “social betting network” that will allow its users to bet on sports together, discuss their bets, advertise their picks, and compete with one another all within their native app.

Much like FanDuel and DraftKings revolutionized sports betting, FanUp is attempting to be the next wave of popularity in online sports betting.

Aimed at the younger, tech-adverse, sports betting crowd, the app will allow users to win real money and prizes based on various sports betting picks.

According to their angel page “FanUp is an interactive gaming company that builds next-generation products and features for the sports betting and esports industries. Our innovative multiplayer features like Challenges, Bet w/ friends, and social tech ensure fans never have to bet alone again.”

While the idea of betting with your friends sounds fun, there is no concrete data or platform information found anywhere on FanUp’s few active pages.

The only available info is that FanUp has hired Clinton Sparks and Michael Hamilton as executives ahead of the launch.

Sparks was previously an exec for FaZe Clan, one of the most popular esports teams and brands in the world.

Hamilton is a sports analytics guy who works specifically to merge esports and hip-hop cultures via media.

It is clear that FanUp will attempt to establish a market in the esports betting world as well as the NFL season in an effort to build a nationwide social media sports betting.
