DAZN wins broadcast rights package for Serie A in Italy - sources

MILAN, March 26 (Reuters) - Serie A clubs on Friday awarded DAZN the rights to screen Italy’s top flight soccer championship in the league’s home market for the next three seasons, two sources said, in one of the largest deals for the video app service in Europe.

The sport streaming service, which entered the Italian market in 2018, offered some 2.5 billion euros for the rights to screen all Serie A matches over the 2021-2024 period, including exclusive rights for seven out of 10 games per match day, sources had previously said.

At a teleconference meeting, 16 out of 20 clubs backed DAZN’s bid to buy the rights to broadcast all Serie A’s matches, said the two sources, who attended the meeting. (Reporting by Elvira Pollina, editing by Maria Pia Quaglia and Hugh Lawson)
