DAZN to offer highlights of FIFA World Cup 2022 in Japan

Dentsu, the Japan-based organisation that owns the country's media rights to the 2022 World Cup, sold the rights to DAZN.

The global streaming network, DAZN Group has cracked a deal to provide short highlights of FIFA World Cup 2022 in Japan.

DAZN is expected to show three-minute highlights of each game from this year’s event, which kicks off on November 20. Along with this, the network will also showcase a regular review programme on its subscription streaming platform. It will also air a World Cup edition of its Judge Replay programme, which normally discusses Japanese J.League matches.

Dentsu, the Japan-based organisation that owns the country’s media rights to the 2022 World Cup, sold the rights to DAZN. Dentsu signed a deal with the streaming platform, Abema, earlier this year to live stream all 64 games from the contest. Abema will broadcast the coverage for free.

Dentsu has yet to make an announcement regarding the linear rights. It licenced the linear rights to NHK and commercial broadcasters Fuji TV, Nippon TV, TBS, TV Asahi, and TV Tokyo in 2018.
