DAZN mulls going public

Co-CEO James Rushton also confirms streamer "will review" Premier League tender

Sports streamer DAZN is mulling the possibility of going public as it looks to drive growth.

In an interview with Reuters, co-CEO James Rushton said, “If circumstances were right, I can see us tapping the public capital markets or the private capital markets over the next few years.”

However, Rushton added that the streamer’s relationship with parent company Access Industries means that an IPO is not necessary.

If DAZN does look to be listed on the stock market it would be the first global sports streaming company to do so.

Rushton also confirmed DAZN could bid for Premier League rights, as reported by TVBEurope in February.

“Once the tender comes out, we’ll review it,” he said.

“The global platform gives… us the opportunity to be agile and launch or supersize into new markets quite quickly,” he added, saying DAZN would evaluate opportunities in Britain, France, Spain and Asia as they come up.
