This story was published more than 1 year ago.

American sportsbetting company FanDuel has announced that they've partnered with future hall-of-fame tight end Rob Gronkowski and will hold a unique betting commercial during the halftime of Super Bowl LVII.

Gronkowski, better known as Gronk, will participate in the "Kick of Destiny" campaign, which will see him attempting to kick a 25 yard field goal. If he ends up nailing the kick, FanDuel punters who put down $5 or more on the game will be able to split $10 million in free bets on the game. There'll also be "Foot of Destiny" pictures of his feet that will be signed and auctioned off after the game.

Commenting on the agreement Gronkowski said, "I spent my career catching the ball, but I always knew I could kick it and now I'll do it live in front of football fans everywhere during the Super Bowl. With $10m in free FanDuel bets on the line, I'm training every day to give fans something to root for and to watch the "Kick of Destiny" live on national television."

FanDuel Executive VP of Marketing Andrew Sneyd added: "Whether it's kick-off, a touchdown or an important play that will decide a season, FanDuel knows moments matter. Our first-ever Super Bowl commercial will be more than just a television spot - it will create a moment that will bring fans together, and give them something to collectively cheer for. It's an unprecedented field goal attempt on live TV…so anything can happen."
