DAZN, YouTube ready Women’s Champions League coverage
October 4, 2021
With the group stage of the UEFA Women’s Champions League officially kicking off this week, global sports streaming platform and host broadcaster DAZN together with partner YouTube are preparing for their live broadcast coverage for fans around the world.
From October 5th through to the finals in May, all 61 matches will be available live on DAZN and free globally on DAZN’s new UEFA Women’s Champions League YouTube channel, as first announced earlier this year.
As it’s the first time UEFA has centralised all Women’s Champions League matches, through the partnership with DAZN and YouTube, fans for the first time will finally be able to follow every single match, throughout the entire season, all around the world, in one single place, for free – making the best women’s football monumentally easier to watch than ever before.
“I am thrilled about this partnership. For people to have access to our games wherever they are is a massive move in the right direction, which was long overdue in my eyes. And looking at the content DAZN is planning, to put the spotlight on players and stories across all places, will take things to the next level too,” said Ada Hegerberg, all-time highest scorer in the UEFA Women’s Champions League, Olympique Lyonnais superstar, and DAZN’s first ever season-long global women’s football ambassador. “UEFA Women’s Champions League is coming close and I can’t wait for this season to start and show the world what we are made of.”
DAZN will travel to a different city each week for its official Game of The Week – giving viewers on DAZN and on YouTube an up close and personal look at all aspects of the game.
The first Game of the Week will be Barcelona vs Arsenal on October 5th and the second will be Juventus vs Chelsea on October 13th, with both featuring a top-notch presentation team soon to be unveiled.
DAZN will guarantee every single match for the season to be available for global audiences in up to three languages: the home team language, the away team language and, if not already covered, English.
