As a new distribution partner for Eurosport’s premium sports networks, DAZN will be able to offer Grand Slam tennis players, Grand Tour cycling and the Olympics.
The sports network will also broadcast 45 German Bundesliga games for the season in Germany and Austria under a two-year sub-licensing agreement.

“This agreement underlines our commitment to providing the largest and best sports event for fans in an affordable and affordable way, rewarding rights holders for integrating their content into the main market platform.”
Traditional pay-TV groups such as Sky and BT in Britain have faced increasing competition for sports rights in recent years, while online platforms require new ways to attract customers.
