McAfee agrees blockbuster FanDuel deal

On Thursday 9 November, it was revealed that sports media personality Pat McAfee had signed a massive sponsorship deal with FanDuel. FanDuel is a gambling company that offers sportsbook, daily fantasy sports, online casino and online horse race betting products.

McAfee’s show is already sponsored by the company, but NFL insider Ian Rapoport revealed a massive four-year extension had been agreed.

The deal will see McAfee’s popular podcast, The Pat McAfee Show, rake in roughly $30 million per year, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The former NFL punter confirmed the news on his YouTube channel, uploaded a video titled: ‘Thank You All So Much.. Pat McAfee’s MASSIVE Announcement.’

What is Pat McAfee’s net worth?

The deal with FanDuel will make the sports book the exclusive betting partner of the show. The deal includes an opt-out option after three years.

Naturally, people wanted to know what Pat McAfee’s net worth is after such a mammoth deal was announced. Pat McAfee’s current net worth is believed to be between $8-10 millions dollars.

During his eight year playing career for the Colts, McAfee made two Pro Bowls and was an All-Pro. From 2009 to 2012, he earned $452,000 per season, and in 2013, signed a one-year $2.97 million deal. His biggest contract came in 2014 when he signed a five-year, $14 million deal.

No doubt the latest lucrative deal with FanDuel will pump his net worth up, though. It’s unclear how much of the reported $30 per year base salary he will receive from FanDuel. However, as the main driver behind the show it’s likely he’ll be rewarded handsomely.
