Sports streaming service DAZN has to sublicense this weekend’s UEFA Women’s Champions League final between Barcelona and Lyon to a number of European broadcasters.
ITV in the UK and Ireland, TF1 in France, RTVE and TV3 in Spain, RTBF in Belgium, SVT Sweden, plus NRK Norway, Sport5 Israel and RUV Iceland will all broadcast the match.
DAZN will make the final available in at least 10 separate language commentary feeds across its streaming service, DAZN’s YouTube channel and the local TV broadcasts.
Shay Segev, CEO, DAZN Group, said: “Securing major terrestrial TV agreements for this momentous final underlines our commitment to increasing visibility of the competition, this epic clash of two world-leading clubs, and also importantly, growing women’s football overall. We are proud of our long-term commitment to contributing towards its global growth – increasing visibility of and access to women’s sport is critical to driving bigger audiences and creating fans and, ultimately, to eliminating the disparity in investment and coverage of women’s and men’s sports.”
The game kicks off at 6pm BST/7pm CET on Saturday 21st May.
