The UEFA Women’s Champions League has a new broadcasting home.
DAZN announced Wednesday morning that it has acquired the broadcasting rights to the UEFA Women’s Champions League from 2021-25. In turn, DAZN has partnered with YouTube to broadcast the games live and for free for fans around the world for the first time.
It will be the first time UEFA has centralized all Women’s Champions League matches globally.
For the first two seasons, all 61 matches from the group stage and on will air live and on demand on DAZN and its YouTube channel. For the last two seasons, all 61 matches will be live on DAZN while 19 of the matches will be free to watch on YouTube.
“Overnight, this will make the best women’s football easier to watch around the world than ever before,” said James Rushton, co-CEO of DAZN. “Along the way, we look forward to elevating live broadcast production, extending existing DAZN content franchises, and unveiling new shows that showcase the breadth and brilliance of women’s football.”
DAZN has also released a new film campaign called “We ALL Rise With More Eyes” directed by Alyssa Boni and conveying DAZN’s long-term vision for bringing more eyes to the UEFA.
“I am beyond excited for this partnership,” said Ada Hegerberg, Olympique Lyonnais star and the all-time leading scorer in the UEFA Women’s Champions League. “For years, people have struggled to have access to our games, wherever they were living. Now, they have the unique opportunity to watch all over the world if they’d like to.
“This is a game-changing partnership that is only right for the biggest club competition in women’s football.”
