DAZN nets ‘€1.5m’ Copa America rights in Spain
Global over-the-top (OTT) service DAZN has secured Spanish media rights to all 26 matches from this year’s Copa América, South America’s premier international soccer tournament, for a reported €1.5 million (US$1.69 million).

The sports streaming platform, which launched its operation in Spain in February, takes over territorial rights to the Conmebol competition in the country, which were previously carried by Telefonica’s Movistar+ streaming platform.

The announcement follows reports last month that both parties were in talks to secure broadcast rights to the Copa America, which kicks off on Saturday 15th June (CET) as hosts Brazil take on Bolivia in in São Paulo.

DAZN’s Italian service has also secured rights to the tournament, adding to its existing summer soccer portfolio that includes the African Cup of Nations (Afcon).

Domestic rights to Copa America have gone to Brazilian free-to-air broadcaster Rede Globo, and Rio de Janeiro-based pay-TV network SporTV, which will broadcaster all 26 matches, including the final in Rio on 7th July.
