Marc Márquez will be the image of the DAZN group in Spain. This digital platform focused on the world of sport will make the disembarkation in our borders using one of our most successful motorists as a brand image. This is not the result of chance, but rather it is about a bet of the company for the MotoGP competition as a championship to be known.
This is because DAZN will retransmit MotoGP in 2019 but not only during this year, since has been made with the rights to retransmit the World Motorcycle until the year 2022. The MotoGP 2019 championship will begin on March 10 in Qatar the Losail International Circuit, as reported by the International Motorcycling Federation itself in a recent statement.
But what is Dazn?
It is possible that you have never heard of DAZN before, but the truth is that it is an internationally recognized streaming television platform and is very popular in countries such as Germany, Japan, the United States of America, Italy, Austria, Canada or Switzerland. From now on its website in Spanish and through multiple devices such as tablets, computers, smartphones or Smart TV will be available in our country for the broadcast of all types of sporting events.
In addition to the MotoGP races, among which the Spanish Speed Championship is included, it is possible to see through other DAZN motor world competitions such as the World Superbike Championship, among many. The price of having the streaming service of DAZN is not very different from that of other streaming platforms of television series and content, since approximately it will be around 10 euros per month.
This price is not yet confirmed by the company itself as it will be known at the end of February, but without a doubt what seems clear at this point is that it will be cheaper than the price you had to pay other seasons to see MotoGP in other payment operators. If we also include that there are other sports competitions, the advantage is more than evident.
A MotoGP champion as an image in Spain
The streaming company has chosen the champion of the previous season, Marc Márquez, as the image of Dazn in our country. This year he will defend his title of champion by the hand of another Spanish driver, Jorge Lorenzo, since they will be teammates in the same team of Repsol Honda, but without a doubt the absence of another Spanish driver like Dani Pedrosa, who retired will be palpable at the end of last season having surpassed the record of permanence in a team like Repsol Honda.
On the other hand, the MotoGP 2019 championship calendar has also been known, this year has a break in the middle of summer, specifically from July 7 to August 4. After starting in Qatar on March 10, the different circuits will continue to finish with the last race that will take place in Valencia on November 17, day in which we will know who stands with the title of MotGP 2019 champion.
It will not be the only occasion in which the championship will touch Spanish soil, since Up to a total of 4 races will take place in our country. Specifically in Spain the championship will be played on May 5 at the Circuito de Jerez-Ángel Nieto, on June 16 the GP of Catalonia, on September 22 at the Aragon GP at the MotorLand Aragón Circuit and finally at Valencia on November 17
In total there will be 19 races in which the 11 teams with their respective drivers will compete to become the new MotoGP champion. So far, only its broadcast in our country has been confirmed through DAZN, because companies such as Movistar have not yet obtained the rights to issue the championship.
Everything seems to indicate that they are in negotiations, although it is not ruled out that they will soon reach an agreement. Whatever the final resolution, the truth is that it will probably never be possible to see the MotoGP championship open and sports streaming platforms such as DAZN or other payment operators are already the main players in the market.
