Sports streamer DAZN has secured a deal to stream Spain’s domestic cup competition, the Copa Del Rey, in Spain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Japan.

Jacopo Tonoli, Chief Commercial Officer, DAZN Group, said: “This is a fantastic deal for our fans in Spain, who can now enjoy domestic football on DAZN as the home of the Copa del Rey.”
