ESPN won’t show DFS ads during College Football Playoff

One of the biggest topics in the world of sports lately has been the advertising and legality of daily fantasy sports leagues like DraftKings and FanDuel. You can’t turn on an NFL game without seeing a commercial for one of those two popular leagues.

The NCAA recently banned ESPN and other programmers from showing these ads during collegiate sporting events on television in hopes to keep themselves out of hot water. However, the NCAA does not constitute the College Football Playoff and it was apparent that the ads would still show.

According to the New York Times, however, ESPN has agreed not to show these ads during the two semifinal and national championship games. Bill Hancock, CFP’s executive director, confirmed this in an email on Wednesday.

As of now, fans can still play college football games with both of these leagues and there has been no plans of removing it from their list of available games.
