NCAA Pulls Plug on Daily Fantasy Sports Leagues
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NCAA says it will no longer play ball with those running daily fantasy sports games. The collegiate sports governing body has written letters to both DraftKings and FanDuel. The letter says it will cancel all future meetings with the companies — and ban advertising from the two websites during NCAA title events like its men’s basketball tournament. The NCAA says it considers the sites meet the definition of wagering — and its broadcasting policy says it won’t accept ad money from entities that wager on sports.
