DR boosts summer content in rights blitz including Women’s World Cup

Danish public-service broadcaster DR has acquired rights to a host of properties this summer, including the Fifa Women’s World Cup, the European Games multi-sport event and the Uefa U-21 European Championship.

DR’s agreement for Fifa Women’s World Cup rights includes all matches. It is the first time the broadcaster has had such extensive coverage. The 2019 edition of the tournament runs from June 7 to July 7.

The broadcaster’s Uefa U-21 European Championship deal includes rights to the Danish team’s matches. These will be shown on its flagship DR1 channel. The tournament is held from June 16 and will conclude on June 30.

This year’s European Games will take place from June 21 to June 30. DR has yet to announce a full broadcast plan for the event but has promised to show a considerable number of hours on its DR2 channel and DRTV streaming service.
