Toronto, September 15, 2021 –  As licensed establishments across Canada are welcoming back patrons and some of the best soccer competitions  kick off around the world, Guinness, in partnership with DAZN, is bringing the world of soccer to participating bars and restaurants in Ontario with live sports via DAZN. Customers of these participating bars and restaurants will be able to enjoy live sports including every single Premier League, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Women’s Champions League, and Europa League match as well as men’s and women’s rugby.

Norm Lem, SVP of DAZN Canada, said: “Having been locked down in Ontario since last spring along with the rest of the country, I have seen the resilience of my fellow Canadians, but also the eagerness to get back to watching your sport, when and where you want it – whether that’s from the comfort of home on your living room TV or meeting up with friends and family at your favorite neighborhood spot. Through this partnership, as beloved local businesses welcome back patrons, DAZN and Guinness can’t wait to provide Canadian sports fans at select venues with the live sports and all the big moments they crave most.”

“Guinness is about community and there is no better way to celebrate that than with friends, drinks, and sports,” said Mark Philips, Director of Marketing, Guinness. “After a challenging year across the country for bars and restaurants we hope this inspires Canadians to support their local businesses while building connections with each other and enjoying great entertainment.”
