DAZN, the leading global sports streaming platform, has closed a non-exclusive distribution deal with Movistar Plus+, the leading entertainment platform in Spain for LaLiga starting next season. DAZN, which was awarded exclusive broadcasting rights for 175 LaLiga matches for seasons 2022/23 through 2026/27, will make this exclusive package available to Movistar Plus+ customers, as part of the DAZN offer integrated on Movistar Plus+, both through its App and its linear channels.  DAZN will be in charge of the production of these five matches per gameweek, bringing new talent and new flavor to LaLiga coverage. Soccer fans, who are not Movistar Plus+ customers, will also be able to watch the DAZN LaLiga package directly on the DAZN app.

DAZN thus secures the commitment of the leading telco operator to support the growth of OTT sport consumption in Spain, signaling the future for LaLiga fans. This deal represents another major step in DAZN´s growth in the Spanish market and reinforces DAZN´s commitment to making it as easy as possible for fans to engage with their favourite sports. The distribution deal follows a series of strategic collaborations in other DAZN core markets:  Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom and Swisscom in Germany, TIM in Italy and KDDI in Japan.

Jacopo Tonoli, Chief Commercial Officer, DAZN Group, said, “We are very pleased to announce this new distribution agreement with Movistar Plus+, expanding on our existing partnership. Our mission is to make premium sport more accessible to an ever-increasing number of fans in an easy, flexible and innovative way, and this deal allows us to do so by driving further growth in Spain.”

Sergio Oslé, President of Movistar Plus+, said: “At Movistar we will focus all our efforts on providing our customers with access to the widest range of content on the market. With this new agreement we guarantee access to all Movistar Plus+ customers to the main competition of our soccer for the next seasons. The agreements reached with LaLiga and DAZN strengthen the relationship with the best partners to continue promoting our `Infinite stadium´ with an unparalleled sports offer.”

Since its launch in 2019, DAZN has secured a strong offering which includes this LaLiga package alongside Copa del Rey, Premier League, UEFA Women’s Champions League, Copa Libertadores, Copa Sudamericana, FA Cup, Carabao Cup or MLS. DAZN is not just about soccer; users in Spain can also enjoy MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3, F1, Turkish Airlines EuroLeague, Matchroom boxing, as well as a wide line-up of DAZN original programming and other sports content.
