DraftKings Opens New Office in Boston’s Back Bay Neighborhood

New England Council member DraftKings Inc. has moved into its new Boston headquarters in the Back Bay neighborhood, complete with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and tour attended by Governor Charlie Baker and other Boston city officials. At 150,000-square-feet, the new space is double the size of DraftKing’s previous office, making it the occupant of one of the largest single-floor office plans in the city.

The new facility accommodates the staff of more than 700, approximately 65 percent of whom were hired last year alone. The new headquarters is equipped with professional production and podcast studios that will allow content to be produced in-house. This expansion follows the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling last year that allows states to determine their own sports gambling laws.

At the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Governor Charlie Baker said, “DraftKings made a big statement here about the city of Boston and in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. . . They really want this to be their home. As a company that’s growing like crazy in a very fast-moving and fast-growing industry, that’s a great signal for people here in the Commonwealth.”

Jason Robins, CEO of DraftKings, commented, “Massachusetts has been home to DraftKings since our inception, and we take immense pride in being part of the vibrant technology community here. . . Our new headquarters will foster innovation while providing a true home-field advantage as we work toward our goal of being the ultimate sports entertainment destination for fans.”

The Council congratulates DraftKings on opening their new facility, and for continuing to be a pioneer in the daily fantasy sports industry.
