FanDuel, a popular daily fantasy sports site, will now run sports betting services in West Virginia.

Shortly before the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a federal law that banned sports betting, lawmakers in West Virginia approved sports betting at casinos and on approved mobile apps.

The state Lottery Commission approved sports betting rules last week, and on Tuesday, The Greenbrier resort announced that FanDuel will handle retail, online and mobile sports wagering. 

The resort’s onsite betting will take place at The Casino Club, which is open only to resort guests and event participants, golf and tennis members, and Greenbrier Sporting Club members.

The goal is to have sports betting underway by the start of football season in September.
