DAZN Clinches UEFA Women’s Champions League Final Deals


DAZN Group has sub-licensed the rights to this weekend’s UEFA Women’s Champions League final to a raft of broadcasters, including ITV in the U.K. and TF1 in France.

The Barcelona versus Lyon final at Turin’s Juventus Stadium is also headed to RTVE and TV3 in Spain, RTBF in Belgium, SVT in Sweden, NRK in Norway, Sport5 in Israel and RUV in Iceland. DAZN Group, which became the exclusive global host broadcaster for the UEFA Women’s Champions League in 2021, is expecting to close additional deals in the coming days.

Shay Segev, CEO of DAZN Group, noted, “Securing major terrestrial TV agreements for this momentous final underlines our commitment to increasing visibility of the competition, this epic clash of two world-leading clubs, and also importantly, growing women’s football overall. We are proud of our long-term commitment to contributing toward its global growth—increasing visibility of and access to women’s sport is critical to driving bigger audiences and creating fans and, ultimately, to eliminating the disparity in investment and coverage of women’s and men’s sports.”

DAZN operates a dedicated UEFA Women’s Champions League YouTube channel that delivers match coverage as well as bonys content such as The Replay, in which players rewatch highlights of an iconic UEFA Women’s Champions League Final from the past; Route to the Final, featuring interviews with players from both teams; and Tunnel Vision.
