FanDuel will provide interactive sports wagering services at The Greenbrier resort in West Virginia.

The Greenbrier announced Tuesday that New York-based FanDuel will handle retail, online and mobile sports wagering for the resort in White Sulphur Springs.

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.

West Virginia lawmakers this year approved sports betting at the state's five casinos and on approved mobile apps, shortly before the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a federal law that had banned most sports betting.

The state Lottery Commission approved sports betting rules last week. The goal is to have sports betting underway by the start of football season in September.
