DAZN Canada lands multi-year international rugby rights deal

DAZN continues as the home of the men's and women's Six Nations Championship in Canada.

DAZN continues to be Canada's home of rugby with the announcement on Thursday of a multi-year deal that includes exclusive rights to the men's and women's Six Nations tournaments through 2024, as well as Autumn Nations Series matches in 2021 and 2022.

The three-year agreement brings to Canadian audiences every match of the Six Nations Championship, the premier men’s and women’s competition for northern hemisphere teams — including Wales, England, France, Ireland, Italy and Scotland — available exclusively on DAZN.

Additionally, fans will have access to the next two seasons of the Autumn Nations Series: a collection of matches that will primarily see northern hemisphere teams clash with southern hemisphere sides. DAZN will carry 40 Autumn Nations Series tests in total — 20 matches each in 2021 and 2022 — and 15 Rugby World Cup warm-up matches in 2023.

If that wasn't enough to satiate even the most ardent rugby fan, DAZN’s broadcast agreement in Canada also includes the Six Nations Under 20s tournament.

“We’re excited to bring even more men’s and women’s rugby to sports fans in Canada on DAZN,” said Norm Lem, SVP Revenue, DAZN Canada. “This stacked schedule of rugby over the next three years will provide DAZN subscribers with even more of the sports they love, their way.”

In Canada, DAZN offers new customers a 30-day free trial period. You can learn how to sign up for a free trial here.

The free-trial period includes access to all of DAZN's live and on-demand programming, including Premier League, Champions League, Europa League, the NFL, WTA events, boxing and more.
