DAZN adds WTA rights in Brazil

OTT streaming service DAZN has acquired exclusive rights in Brazil to tournaments organised by the Women’s Tennis Association.

The agreement follows a similar deal DAZN struck for Spain last week, with the service to cover the remainder of the 2019 WTA season.

DAZN will commence its coverage on Wednesday with the ongoing BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California. The platform will then go on to cover the second week of the Miami Open.

The service is set to fully launch in Brazil later this month, with fans being able to initially access WTA action from Indian Wells and Miami free of charge via the platform’s Facebook and YouTube channels.
