DAZN will have exclusive broadcast rights to the US soccer league in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy and Spain with immediate effect. This will see every MLS match broadcast on the platform exclusively in these regions. The company also has been awarded rights for the MLS in Brazil, though this is not exclusive.
Jacopo Tonoli, Chief Commercial Officer, DAZN, said: “MLS has a growing global audience and this agreement means we will continue to build that fandom around the world.
