DAZN CEMENTS POSITION AS HOME OF EUROPEAN SOCCER IN CANADA
TORONTO, April 3, 2019 /CNW/ - Today DAZN announced it won the exclusive rights in Canada to all Premier League matches for the next three seasons, kicking off in August 2019.
The new partnership will bring every single Premier League match to one platform for the first time in Canada. DAZN's acquisition of these exclusive rights to the most notable soccer league in the world signals the dawn of a new age for European soccer fans. With a DAZN subscription, Canadian fans will have a season pass to watch a rich roster of European soccer, including UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, Serie A TIM, LaLiga Santander and Ligue 1 Conforama.
"European soccer fandom in Canada is more fervent than ever, and we are proud to be at the epicentre of this trend," said Joseph Markowski, DAZN EVP, North America. "The addition of the Premier League will give Canadian fans access to some of the world's best clubs, and cements DAZN's position as the home of European soccer in Canada."
"DAZN provides an excellent service to sports fans in Canada and we are very pleased they have invested in these rights," said Paul Molnar, Premier League Director of Broadcasting. "We look forward to working with them for the next three seasons to make Premier League football available across the country."
In addition to streaming all 380 matches per season live, DAZN will receive Premier League highlights, preview and weekly magazine programs, plus clips of archived footage.
