DAZN lands Copa Del Rey rights in Spain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland & Japan

DAZN, the largest, fastest growing global sports streaming service, announced today that it has secured a deal to stream Spain’s premier domestic cup competition, the Copa Del Rey, in Spain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Japan.

The three-year deal covers the upcoming seasons from 2019/20 – 2021/22, bringing the biggest teams in Spanish football to the platform and represents DAZN’s first package of domestic football rights in Spain.

In Spain, DAZN will stream a minimum of 50 matches from the competition exclusively, alongside 15 co-exclusive matches, each season as part of a sub-licensing 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 prestigious competition in four additional markets, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Japan, for the next three seasons.

A total of 116 clubs will compete in this season’s Copa del Rey, with the final taking place on 18th April 2020. Last season saw Valencia take home the trophy in a dramatic victory over former champions Barcelona, claiming their eighth title.

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.”

The Copa Del Rey will join DAZN’s increasingly extensive catalogue of football worldwide, which already includes Premier League, Champion’s League, FA Cup, La Liga, Serie A, Ligue 1, Coppa Italia, CONMEBOL Libertadores, CONMEBOL Sudamericana, MLS and J1-League, among other competitions.
