Online Daily Fantasy Sports in South Korea
Since the South Korean government doesn’t issue internet daily fantasy sports licenses, DFS is unregulated in the country. However, since Koreans are keen sports fans and also avid followers of eSports, they can access offshore daily fantasy sites if they want to play fantasy sports for money.
The South Korean national team has been a considerable force on international level in the last decades with coming fourth at the 2002 FIFA World Cup that they hosted together with Japan. Therefore football is big in the Asian country and other sports like, baseball, basketball, handball, volleyball and golf are also very popular. And above all, South Korea is an eSports superpower.
So, it is easy to see why the 50 million South Korea is an important market for online daily fantasy sports sites. There is a natural market for daily fantasy football leagues, like daily fantasy EPL, and for other sports too, obviously including daily fantasy eSports, which could really begin to blossom in South Korea in the coming years.
