DAZN Canada acquire rights to broadcast 2018 MLS games

March 2, 2018 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
DAZN will host MLS Live on its platform to offer live streaming services of games in the 2018 MLS season.

On Friday, the Canadian live sports streaming service and the Major League Soccer signed a three-year contract which will see the MLS’ traditional streaming service, MLS LIVE, move to the DAZN platform. By so doing, fans with access to the network will be able to view a minimum of 262 regular season games live and an addendum of 129 games which will be a 48-hour delayed broadcast. 

Managing Director of Rights for DAZN, Alex Rice, stressed the importance of the move after being able to strike a partnership with the MLS.

"It's a tremendous time to be a soccer fan in Canada, and we know the sport has entered a new era nationally, with impressive growth in interest and in fandom.”

"We are proud and excited to be offering fans even more soccer content on our platform, making it the destination with the most soccer in Canada." 

Also, Diego Moratorio - the General Manager of MLS Canada - added a few words to laud the cause.

"We are thrilled to move MLS LIVE to a great new platform in Canada while providing our Canadian fans a way to watch MLS action all season long.

"DAZN will expand the reach of MLS LIVE, providing supporters easier access to the games they love."

With all said and done, here is what fans can look forward to from the DAZN Canada and MLS partnership in the 2018 football season: 

  • The 2018 MLS regular season begins tomorrow, Saturday, March 3, and Canadians can view the first game between Toronto FC vs. Columbus Crew by subscribing to DAZN
  • The league’s newest entrants, Los Angeles FC will be hosted by Seattle Sounders in their first-ever competitive league game in the franchise’s history. 
  • Outside the MLS action, Canadian soccer fans will be able to watch the some of the games in the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League competitions due to the existing partnership between DAZN and beIN SPORTS. 
  • In April, fans with access to DAZN will be able to watch Team Canada go for gold at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
  • For viewers in Canada, DAZN is priced at $20 per month or $150 for an annual subscription. There is also one free month subscription offer for all new subscribers.
