DAZN inks BLAST Premier partnership

CS:GO esports tournament organiser BLAST Premier has signed a media rights partnership with sports subscription service DAZN. The partnership will see DAZN broadcast the BLAST Spring Final, which is being held in Lisbon, and also all other BLAST Premier events in 2022. The partnership will cover almost a hundred of DAZN’s territories both live and on-demand, including the regions of Japan, the USA and the UK.

Alexander Lewin, VP of Distribution and Programming at BLAST, commented:

We’re thrilled to team up with one of the world’s biggest and most respected sports streaming services in DAZN. Our overarching aim is always to ensure BLAST Premier is available and accessible in as many regions around the world as possible, this partnership is helping us to achieve that goal with BLAST now broadcast in 154 territories and in 25 languages. Our partnership with DAZN in over 100 markets is testament to the current global demand for BLAST Premier and the high production quality.

Tom Burrows, DAZN EVP Rights, DAZN Group, added:

DAZN is committed to making a broad range of sport more accessible to an ever-increasing number of fans and this is a great opportunity to partner with BLAST Premier and broadcast the Counter-Strike tournament series on our platform. There is a fast-growing market for Esports and the series is a great fit for DAZN while we continue to expand our offering and become the ultimate sports destination platform for fans.

DAZN previously partnered with BLAST in February 2020, gaining the media rights of the Brazilian broadcast. It also has a CS:GO partnership with WePlay Esports.
