Online Daily Fantasy Sports in Iceland
As of May 2016, internet daily fantasy sports in Iceland are unregulated but allowed. There are no DFS websites that operate from within Iceland, but there are many foreign daily fantasy sports websites that accept Icelandic players.
Iceland has a rich sporting culture. Football is the most popular sport in this small country, and was recently ranked as one of the top 5 most dedicated football nations in the country. An estimated 4.2% of Icelanders go to domestic football games regularly, according to sporting intelligence. The massive amount of fans here makes Iceland a great market for daily fantasy football.
The success of Icelandic UFC fighter Gunnar Nelson has significantly increased the popularity of MMA in Iceland over the past few years. There are now many daily fantasy MMA leagues available in Iceland.
The other most popular sports in Iceland include handball, basketball, golf, and horseback riding. Some online daily fantasy sports sites in Iceland offer leagues for these sports.
Many Icelanders are beginning to play daily fantasy sports for money, and it may not be long before we see a local DFS website begin to operate here.
