"Growing up in Canada and being such a diehard football and soccer fan, young Will would have gotten a real kick out of being able to watch every NFL game and every soccer match all in one place, anywhere and anytime I wanted," said Toronto native Arnett. "What DAZN has done for my fellow Canadians is seriously game-changing and with all of the best football at your fingertips, I can only hope you'll be giving my two favorite teams – Liverpool F.C. and the New York Jets – some extra Canuck love from up in the Great White North."
