Shay Segev is the CEO of DAZN Group, the world’s leading sports and entertainment platform. Headquartered in the UK and available in over 200 markets, DAZN is reimagining the way people enjoy sports.
DAZN is the leading digital sports platform in Italy, Spain, Germany, Belgium, Portugal, Japan, and Canada, with a strong presence in France, the US, and the UK.
Its wide range of exclusive content includes top-flight football from the world’s most watched competitions – Bundesliga, English Premier League, J.League, LaLiga, Serie A, and the UEFA Champions League, in addition to the biggest sports from around the world – Formula 1, NFL, NBA, MotoGP and the UFC. DAZN is the global home of boxing and combat sports, offering the largest year-long schedule of blockbuster fights to fans around the world.
Shay has conceived and overseen the evolution of DAZN’s strategic focus, recruiting an impressive new leadership team from across the worlds of media, technology, entertainment, gaming and sport, while driving an ambitious growth and acquisition programme; using premium sports rights as an anchor to add other engaging and immersive content seamlessly into DAZN’s sports ecosystem.
Within its entertainment ecosystem, in 2022 DAZN launched a recreational betting product, an ecommerce offering, and a range of interactive features that augment the viewing experience and deliver a richer and more interactive experience for customers. In 2023 the pace of innovation and investment has increased. A ground-breaking deal with the NFL to deliver their Game Pass globally, a multi-territory channel partnership with Amazon Prime Video, the development of a in-app merchandise offer with Fanatics, and the launch of DAZN in France with Ligue 1 Uber Eats rights are just some of the highlights.
With much more to come, DAZN is unquestionably the most innovative company in this space and will soon become the ultimate destination for sports fans, globally.
