Rangers could be set for a major Champions League boost, as a deal DAZN has reached to take over BT Sport is expected to be finalized later this month.
Sports streaming service DAZN is set to close a deal to acquire BT Sport which will give it access to UEFA Champions League rights, Reuters said, after a rival offer from Discovery INC failed in December.
It could be a boost for Ibrox’s side and give them even more motivation to win the league title and qualify for the Champions League group stages next season.
With a financial windfall of nearly £ 40million for the club if they can compete in the group stages of the elite European competition, it could go even higher if DAZN succeeds in securing the deal.
This kind of money could change the course of the club’s operation in the future, avoiding the need to sell players and also the ability to bring better talent to the club.
DAZN could improve the future of Scottish football
While the streaming service has its eyes set on the lucrative rights to the Champions League and English Premier League matches, it could be possible that the SPFL will advocate and profit from the takeover.
We all know the Scottish game is under-sold criminally with the total money invested in our game being sixteenth on the list across Europe, behind countries like Norway, Denmark and Sweden.
The BT Sport coverage of the Scottish game was well revered by fans, and if this exceptional deal with the DAZN giants is made, it may well improve the future of our game.
Meanwhile, Rangers look set to take on Premier League Wolves as they pursue an 18-year-old Spanish talent.
