DAZN acquires Asian Cup rights in US

Soccer fans in the United States wanting to watch the 2019 AFC Asian Cup can now watch the remainder of the tournament for free via the legal streaming service DAZN.

DAZN has acquired the U.S. rights to the competition for the quarterfinals to the final, which kick off on Thursday and Friday featuring Vietnam-Japan, China-Iran, South Korea-Qatar and UAE-Australia, which you can also stream to your TV.

You can start your subscription to DAZN, which also includes access to boxing (from Bellator to Matchroom Boxing to World Boxing Super Series to Combate Americas) as well as J-League, Liga Chilena and AFC Champions League.

Pronounced “Da Zone,” the new streaming service hired former ESPN President John Skipper last May. In the past few months, DAZN has been actively entering discussions to try to acquire more soccer rights, according to World Soccer Talk sources.

The addition of the Asian Cup rights could be the beginning of more rights deals being announced in the near future.

In addition to the U.S. rights to the Asian Cup, Canadian soccer fans can also start a subscription to DAZN Canada to watch the Asian Cup.
