May 18, 2018

Even after the domestic season has ended, live sports streaming service DAZN claims it is continuing to offer fans in Germany the very best footballing action with news that extensive highlights from the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup will be available on the platform.

DAZN has sub-licensed the highlights for Germany from sports rights agency SportA with clips from all 64 2018 FIFA World Cup games available on the platform as soon as 45 minutes after the final whistle. The highlights will be available at no extra cost, as part of the standard €9.99 per month subscription package.

“We’re absolutely delighted to be adding 2018 FIFA World Cup highlights to our growing repertoire of premium live and on-demand multi-sport content,” remarked Kay Dammholz, Managing Director Rights & Distribution, DAZN. “The competition is the pinnacle for any footballer and so we’re eagerly anticipating brilliant action from the best teams and players on the planet. With the 2014 FIFA World Cup Germany holders looking to defend the title, the deal is a great addition for DAZN subscribers in Germany before the live coverage of the top European leagues as well as UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League commence later this summer.”
