DAZN has continued to cement its position in the Spanish market after acquiring the rights to show the knockout stages of the ongoing CONCACAF Gold Cup, featuring the USMNT and Mexico, among others.
DAZN had already acquired the rights to show the Gold Cup in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Brazil.
With the first two quarter-final games confirmed as Mexico Vs Costa Rica and Haiti Vs Canada, DAZN announced the exclusive rights to broadcast all remaining fixtures in the competition. They will start their Gold Cup coverage by broadcasting both of those quarter-finals on June 29th.
Jamaica, Curacao, the United States and Panama will be the other four quarter-finalists, although with some group stage fixtures remaining, we are still awaiting the confirmed match-ups.
The USMNT’s presence is sure to help DAZN’s marketing of the Gold Cup abroad with Chelsea’s new star Christian Pulisic the main attraction.
Earlier this month, DAZN confirmed that they would be showing the Copa America 2019 tournament in Spain so the Gold Cup is another coup for the ever-growing over-the-top (OTT) streaming service.
So far, DAZN has covered boxing, mixed martial arts, baseball and football. The service can be viewed across multiple devices and involves users signing up for either an annual or monthly fee.
In recent months, the organisation has taken a definite step deeper into the world of live football, having also secured rights to broadcast the African Cup of Nations this summer in Germany, Austria and Brazil.
The Gold Cup deal adds to DAZN’s expansive portfolio of premium international football rights worldwide.
