In a deal worth more than €4.95 billion ($5.6 billion), Movistar and DAZN have scored the rights to broadcast LaLiga matches in Spain over the next five seasons.

The latest tender covers the period from 2022/2023 to 2026/2027. Movistar will broadcast five matches per match day plus three full match days. DAZN will stream five matches per match day. The Spanish football league says the deal value is an increase on the previous cycle.
