The spokesperson from the company stated:

“We have been very happy with our first month of legal sports betting in the District of Columbia. The FanDuel Sportsbook at Audi Field is quickly becoming a go to destination for sports fans looking for a great location to watch an event. It has also been a popular destination for DC United fans during game days with our pitch side views of all the great action.”
