DAZN, the OTT service operated by digital sports media company Perform, has picked up rights to show highlights in Germany of the 2018 Fifa World Cup tournament.

The network, which has sublicensed the highlights from sports rights agency SportA, will show clips from all 64 games.

The highlights will be made available 45 minutes after the final whistle, and can be accessed by DAZN subscribers as part of its standard €9.99 per month subscription package.

Kay Dammholz, managing director of rights and distribution at DAZN, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be adding 2018 Fifa World Cup highlights to our growing repertoire of premium live and on-demand multi-sport content.

“The competition is the pinnacle for any footballer and so we’re eagerly anticipating brilliant action from the best teams and players on the planet. With the 2014 Fifa World Cup Germany holders looking to defend the title, the deal is a great addition for DAZN subscribers in Germany before the live coverage of the top European leagues as well as Uefa Champions League and Uefa Europa League commence later this summer.”

The 2018 Fifa World Cup is due to kick off on 14th June in Russia.
