DAZN has struck a deal for the exclusive rights in Canada to all Premier League matches for the next three seasons.
The new partnership will elevate the level of football available to a Canadian audience, bringing every single Premier League match to one platform for the first time in the country.
DAZN’s acquisition of these exclusive rights to the most notable league in the world signals the dawn of a new age for European soccer fans. With a DAZN subscription, Canadian fans will have a season pass to watch a rich roster of European soccer, including UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, Serie A TIM, LaLiga Santander and Ligue 1 Conforama.
Joseph Markowski, DAZN EVP, North America commented: “European soccer fandom in Canada is more fervent than ever, and we are proud to be at the epicentre of this trend,” said “The addition of the Premier League will give Canadian fans access to some of the world’s best clubs, and cements DAZN’s position as the home of European soccer in Canada.”
“DAZN provides an excellent service to sports fans in Canada and we are very pleased they have invested in these rights,” said Paul Molnar, Premier League Director of Broadcasting. “We look forward to working with them for the next three seasons to make Premier League football available across the country.”
In addition to streaming all 380 matches per season live, DAZN will receive Premier League highlights, preview and weekly magazine programs, plus clips of archived footage.
The acquisition comes as DAZN heightens its focus on building its portfolio of rights, reportedly closing in on the sale of its Perform Content business as it seeks to focus on the expansion of its growing portfolio of sports rights.
