DAZN secures live rights to Copa Del Rey in Spain, Germany, Austria and Switzerland
Sports streaming service DAZN has secured the rights to show Spain’s premier domestic cup competition, the Copa Del Rey, in Spain, Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
The three-year deal, which covers the seasons from 2019-20 to 2021-22, is DAZN’s first package of domestic football rights in Spain.
A minimum of 50 matches from the competition will be streamed exclusively, alongside 15 co-exclusive matches, each season as part of a sublicensing agreement with Mediaset. Non-exclusive fixtures will include the final and semi-finals of the competition.
DAZN has also secured the exclusive broadcast rights for the competition in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Japan, for the next three seasons.
Jacopo Tonoli, chief commercial officer, DAZN Group, said: “This is a fantastic deal for our fans in Spain, who can now enjoy domestic football on DAZN as the home of the Copa del Rey. DAZN fans can now watch the best teams from Spain battle it out alongside our line-up of premium sport, which includes the Premier League, as part of their existing subscription. DAZN is thriving as a better and fairer way to watch the best sport, anytime, on any device, as part of our vision to make sport affordable and accessible for all.”
Valencia won the Copa Del Rey in 2019, beating Barcelona in the final.
