Sports streaming service DAZN has announced a renewal of its exclusive media rights to keep broadcasting the English Premier League in Spain from the 2022/23 to 2024/25 season.
In addition to offering coverage live and on-demand, DAZN will be providing other content such as documentaries, interviews and original productions.
The partnership began in 2018 when DAZN secured exclusive, platform-neutral rights to the league from 2019/20 to 2021/22.
Potential broadcasters were asked to lodge bids for both the three-season (2022-23 to 2024-25) and six-season (2022-23 to 2027-28) contract periods. Four different live rights packages were on offer in Spain, including a package containing all 380 matches.
Rights to show the Premier League are also held by DAZN in the same 2019-2022 cycle in Brazil, Canada, Japan and the Philippines.
Chief Customer and Innovation Officer at DAZN, Veronica Diquattro, acknowledged the potential growth for both DAZN and the Premier League as a result of the partnership.
“We will keep on working together to offer the growing number of fans who follow the Premier League in Spain the best experience and the best content, so that they can enjoy it to the full and discover new stories first hand through the key players, on and off the field,” she said.
Premier League Chief Media Officer Paul Molnar affirmed Diquattro’s enthusiasm by acknowledging the opportunities that teaming up with DAZN presents.
“The Premier League is delighted to continue our excellent partnership with DAZN in Spain. DAZN provides market-leading sports coverage and Premier League fans can look forward to more live matches than ever before,” he said.
Other football properties also currently offered by DAZN in Spain include Copa del Rey, Copa Libertadores, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, Coppa Italia and Major League Soccer.
In addition to the Premier League, DAZN recently secured exclusive global media rights to the UEFA Women’s Champions League from the 2021/22 to 2024/25 season.
