Underdog Announces North Carolina Sports Betting Partnership with McConnell Golf





Underdog Sports, the fast-growing sports gaming platform, announced a partnership with McConnell Golf as part of its application for a sports betting license in North Carolina. Sedgefield Country Club, a private club, located in Greensboro, and host of the PGA TOUR’s Wyndham Championship, appointed Underdog to host, manage, operate, and support the Underdog branded online gambling services in the state. McConnell Golf, through its ownership, operates Sedgefield Country Club.

“Underdog is thrilled to launch our betting games in North Carolina in partnership with McConnell Golf. We’ve spent the last four years building our own technology so we can give sports fans in America new and different ways to enjoy the sports they love. We’re excited to be able to offer that to North Carolinians and look forward to evolving the experience with them,” Jeremy Levine, founder and co-CEO of Underdog Sports, said.

“McConnell Golf is thrilled to welcome Underdog Sports as our official sports betting partner. Underdog is the fastest growing fantasy sports company ever – that is impressive,” McConnell Golf COO Christian Anastasiadis said.

Anastasiadis notes that it was important for McConnell Golf to find the right partner that could provide a completely different approach to sports competitions and tournaments.


“We too believe in thinking differently and challenging the status quo, and there is a lot of star power behind the Underdog Fantasy app. I truly believe we found the right partner,” said Anastasiadis.

“This partnership was conceived with fans in mind. We’re looking forward to working with McConnell Golf to bring people together to experience their premier club properties,” added Levine.

To date, Underdog is one of nine operators to submit applications to the North Carolina State Lottery Commission, which is overseeing the rollout of the state’s sports betting market. North Carolina legalized online sports betting after Governor Roy Cooper signed HB 347 into law in June 2023. Underdog’s sports betting platform will be part of a strong, competitive market for sports wagering in the Tarheel State that will benefit sports, sports fans, and all North Carolinians.

Underdog currently operates and offers fantasy sports products in 33 states and virtually all Canadian provinces and territories.
