Is DAZN preparing a Premier League bid?

Bidding on the 2022-2025 broadcast rights are expected to close this week

DAZN, the so-called Netflix of sports, is said to be considering throwing its hat into the ring for the next round of Premier League broadcast rights.

The rights for the 2022-2025 seasons are expected to be allocated before May.

According to the Telegraph, the sports streamer is preparing to take on the likes of Sky Sports, BT Sport and Amazon Prime Video to secure rights to some matches.

It’s thought the next round of rights in likely to cost significantly less due to a channel sharing deal between Sky and BT. Because of that, the value of the rights is expected to drop by up to £920 million.

Bidding is expected to end this week.

DAZN already owns exclusive Premier League rights in Spain, Canada and Japan, but has yet to break into the UK football market.
