It's almost all ready for the return of the Serie A matches of the 2021-2022 season: how to watch the matches on DAZN streaming
The issue of TV rights is a recurring topic for the most popular sports such as soccer in Italy. And it could not be otherwise, since it is a topic that affects both fans who want to follow the entire Serie A on TV and the teams, which find their main source of income in the rights.
Every three years the Lega Serie A renews the assignment of TV rights for the transmission of the soccer championship. The year 2021 coincided with the year of renewal for the three-year period that will end in 2024, a time frame that naturally includes the next season of Serie A 2021-2022. It is normal that many people are confused about how to watch the 2021-22 Serie A, especially this time around when the league is close to a momentous transition. The League has in fact found an agreement with DAZN, a reality that bases its business on streaming. Serie A 2021-22 will be visible on streaming on DAZN, and all the matches of the championship will be on the Internet, something that has never happened before in the history of football.
The stages of the 2021-22 Serie A on DAZN
After the hardships for players and insiders of the anomalous 2020-2021 season, which started in close proximity to the previous one for the recovery of matches postponed due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, not even the 2021-22 Serie A will enjoy who knows what pre-season rest because of Euro 2020 then Euro 2021.
The final in London on July 11, 2021 that will crown the national team winning the European Football Championship will force the summoned players to a shorter rest period than normal: Serie A 2021-22 will open on DAZN on August 22, 2021, and continue until December 23 when there will be the usual break for the Christmas holidays.
It will start again on January 6, 2022 with the streaming of DAZN to get straight to the last championship scheduled for May 22, 2022 between midweek rounds, Italian Cup matches and European commitments.
Details on Serie A 2021-22 on DAZN
At present DAZN has acquired the rights to all 10 Serie A matches scheduled for each day, of these 10, 7 are exclusive and 3 are co-exclusive with Sky. In fact, the second package - the one that includes 3 co-exclusive matches - was recently assigned by the Lega Calcio to Sky.
This does not change one iota the fact that the 2021-22 Serie A matches will all be streamed on DAZN. In other words, in order to have complete coverage of the entire Serie A championship, it will not be necessary to subscribe twice - as has been the case in recent years - but only one subscription with DAZN will be needed.
The monthly cost of Serie A 2021-22 on DAZN is not yet known. The company will announce it within a short while, but we can imagine it will be in line with what Sky has charged in recent years, at most slightly lower.
However, DAZN offers not inconsiderable advantages including total flexibility: smart TVs, set-top boxes, streaming sticks, smartphones, tablets, PCs and gaming consoles. It also allows you to register up to 6 different devices for each account, 2 of which can access at the same time and thus enjoy live content simultaneously.
