DAZN, the so-called Netflix of sports, has won the live and on-demand rights for the UEFA Champions League in Germany for the next three seasons.
The new deal will run from the 2021/22 season, which is also when DAZN will begin streaming 106 Bundesliga matches per season.
For the UCL, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, DAZN will stream 121 out of 138 matches from the playoffs to the final. Every match, except one per week, will be live and exclusive with the final shared with free-to-air.
John Gleasure, chief business development officer at DAZN, said “Extending our coverage of the UEFA Champions League until 2024, alongside our extensive Bundesliga rights acquisition means DAZN will become the number one destination for football fans in Germany. At the peak, we’ll show exclusive live coverage in Germany at eight out of the 10 kick-off times a week across the two leading club competitions, giving fans affordable access to the most prestigious and exciting football competitions around.”
