Movistar Plus+ gets LaLiga with DAZN distribution deal

Sports streamer DAZN has announced a distribution deal in Spain with Movistar Plus+ for the country’s top flight football league LaLiga.

The non-exclusive distribution deal will see DAZN’s rights to 175 LaLiga matches available to Movistar Plus+ customers from 2022/23-2026/27. Coverage will be available as part of the DAZN offer  integrated on Movistar Plus+ via its App and its linear channels.

In total, Movistar Plus+ customers will have access to five LaLiga games per match day, with DAZN in charge of production.

This is the latest distribution deal agreed between DAZN and a telco in one of its core markets, along with the likes of Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom and Swisscom in Germany, TIM in Italy and KDDI in Japan. 

Jacopo Tonoli, chief commercial officer, DAZN Group, said, “We are very pleased to announce this new distribution agreement with Movistar Plus+, expanding on our existing partnership. Our mission is to make premium sport more accessible to an ever-increasing number of fans in an easy, flexible and innovative way, and this deal allows us to do so by driving further growth in Spain.”
