DAZN wins Copa del Rey final rights in five markets, Discovery lands Danish rights

OTT streaming service DAZN has acquired rights to the final of the 2018-19 edition of Spanish club football competition the Copa del Rey in five of its markets, while US media group Discovery has landed the same rights in Denmark.

DAZN has secured exclusive rights to the match in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Japan; and will broadcast the fixture non-exclusively in Italy.

Discovery will show the match in Denmark on its 6-eren channel and on its Eurosport Player.

This season’s Copa del Rey final sees Barcelona take on Valencia at the Benito Villamarín Stadium in Seville on Saturday.

The rights-holder, Spain’s football federation, was ordered by a Spanish court on Monday to reverse its exclusion of the Mediapro agency from the domestic tender for the final and re-adjudicate the process.
