DAZN acquires Aser Ventures Eleven sports media businesses

Investment platform, Aser Ventures, has announced the acquisition of its Eleven sports media businesses by sports entertainment platform, DAZN

From launching in a single market in 2015, Eleven has since become a global sports media destination, expanding in several additional countries and territories and via a global OTT service through which tens of millions of fans engage with live content. Eleven also plays a key role in supporting the production, delivery, and distribution of live content on the ground-breaking digital platform FIFA+, and the creation of commercial opportunities related to the live content. The digital video publisher Team Whistle has further become a top 10 ranked sports media property in the US, with more than 4bn video views per month.

“I’m thrilled that Eleven and Team Whistle are now formally within the DAZN family, which will provide both DAZN and Eleven with new and complementary markets, synergies, and opportunities for growth,” said Andrea Radrizzani, Chairman of Aser Ventures. “I’m looking forward to taking up an executive position on the board, and working closely with DAZN CEO Shay Segev and Marc Watson to build the leading global sports entertainment platform.”
