DAZN confirms new deal for Premier League rights in Canada

OTT service DAZN has confirmed the addition of the English Premier League to its portfolio of live rights in Canada, in a new three-season deal, from 2019-20 to 2021-22.

The deal was originally reported in December. DAZN will air all 380 matches each season from the Premier League.

DAZN currently holds rights to a host of European football properties, including Uefa Champions League, Italy’s Serie A, and Spain’s La Liga.

It acquired its Laliga rights in partnership with pay-television broadcaster beIN Sports, which gave DAZN simulcast rights to beIN’s entire sport-rights portfolio.

Premier League rights in Canada are currently held by telco Bell, from 2016-17 to 2018-19.

DAZN entered the Canadian market in July 2017.
