DAZN snaps up WTA rights in Spain

OTT service DAZN has acquired exclusive rights in Spain for Women’s Tennis Association tournaments.

According to the Telecom Paper news website, coverage will be shown on DAZN’s new Spanish service from next month. The deal excludes Spain’s two domestic WTA tournaments, in Madrid and Mallorca – these sell their domestic rights individually.

Under the deal, DAZN will show all WTA events through to the end of this year, including the Indian Wells and Beijing Open tournaments, as well as the season-ending WTA Finals.

DAZN Spain went live last week with a monthly subscription fee of €4.99 ($5.60). Viewers are also able to sign up for a one-month trial.

The platform will also show the MotoGP motorcycling series, the World Rally Championship, Euroleague Basketball and English football’s Premier League.
