Sports streamer DAZN has announced a deal for the rights to the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) in DACH.
The five-year broadcast deal will give subscribers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland access to PDC televised tournaments until at least 2027. This includes events such as the World Darts Championship, Premier League, World Matchplay, Grand Slam of Darts and PDC European Tour.
PDC chairman Eddie Hearn – better known as the charismatic chairman of Matchroom Boxing – said: “Since 2016, DAZN’s coverage of the PDC events in the DACH region has proven to be very popular and helped to build a loyal fan base that loves the sport. Accordingly, it is fantastic news that we have been able to extend our broadcast partnership with DAZN in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, expanding coverage for the ever-growing number of subscribers.”
Thomas de Buhr, executive vice president DAZN DACH, said: “The recent World Darts Championship has shown once again that the interest and enthusiasm of fans for the sport is unbroken. With the long-term contract extension with the PDC and Matchroom we therefore meet the wish of all fans who can look forward to many more years of darts live on DAZN.”
