Fans in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland will be able to watch more darts than ever before through DAZN following the announcement of a new five-year broadcast deal with the PDC.
DAZN, the world’s leading sports platform, has extended its association with the PDC across the DACH region to continue its coverage of PDC televised tournaments until at least 2027.
In addition to PDC Premier events such as the World Darts Championship, Premier League, World Matchplay, and Grand Slam of Darts, DAZN will now be broadcasting PDC European Tour events in an exciting new development.
“Since 2016, DAZN’s coverage of the PDC events in the DACH region has proven to be very popular and helped to build a loyal fan base that loves the sport,” said PDC Chairman Eddie Hearn.
“Accordingly, it is fantastic news that we have been able to extend our broadcast partnership with DAZN in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, expanding coverage for the ever-growing number of subscribers.”
Thomas de Buhr, Executive Vice President DAZN DACH, said: “The recent World Darts Championship has shown once again that the interest and enthusiasm of fans for the sport is unbroken.
“With the long-term contract extension with the PDC and Matchroom we, therefore, meet the wish of all fans who can look forward to many more years of darts live on DAZN.”
DAZN’s coverage will continue to be presented by popular German broadcaster Elmar Paulke alongside Tom Kirsten, and will also include on-demand programming including “Elmar’s 9-Darter”, “Beat the Elmar” and “Road to Ally Pally”.
“This is great news for all fans and the darts community in Germany, Austria and Switzerland,” said Paulke. “There is now more darts than ever on DAZN, and it starts on January 28 with me at the microphone and the tenth edition of The Masters.”
