DAZN adds Euroleague to Spanish rights portfolio

Sports streaming service DAZN has acquired exclusive rights in Spain to Euroleague Basketball club competitions.

The four-season deal runs from 2019-20 to 2022-23 and includes live matches and clips from the top-tier EuroLeague and second-tier EuroCup.

The deal builds on DAZN’s announcement earlier this month that it is to launch in Spain in 2019, with a media rights portfolio including motorcycling championship MotoGP and football’s English Premier League.

Jacopo Tonoli, chief commercial officer at DAZN, said: “Euroleague Basketball has shown how serious it is about growing the sport’s fanbase since its launch in 2000. We too have big ambitions and love to partner with rights holders that embrace the change in how fans want to watch sport, building their audiences through streaming.

“We’re expanding at an incredible pace and soon will be able to share the full details of our launch, with an unbeatable roster of rights in the market.”
