The package will include matches from the UEFA Nations League, European Qualifiers and international friendlies

Live streaming platform DAZN has signed a multi-year broadcast deal to bring international soccer matches to screens in Canada from 2022 to 2028. The sports streaming service has picked up English language rights to selected matchups from elite competitions involving the likes of World Champions France and European Champions Italy, as well as England, Spain, Germany and many more.

The deal will include a minimum of 57 matches for each national team and run for the next six years. It includes matches from the UEFA Nations League, European Qualifiers for Euro 2024, Euro 2028 and the 2026 FIFA World Cup, as well as international frendlies.

Norm Lem, SVP of DAZN Canada said:

“We’re excited to bring more soccer to DAZN subscribers in Canada via another package of premium UEFA competitions."

“Alongside both UEFA Men’s and Women’s Champions League as well as UEFA Europa League and UEFA Europa Conference League, this multitude of UEFA National Team matches will give fans an even bigger library of live soccer to enjoy on DAZN in Canada.”

This news comes on the back of DAZN making ground in broadcasting rights across Europe itself, most notably by becoming the domestic rights holder for Serie A soccer in Italy.

The company failed in its bid to buy BT Sport earlier this year but still remains in a strong position with a growing portfolio of sports rights across the world as it attempts to increase its subscriber base year-on-year.
