OCTOBER 24, 2017
DAZN continued with recent success as it was recognised at last night’s TV Sports Awards in Monaco. The event, supported by SPORTEL Monaco, celebrated excellence within the sports media industry and was hosted at the magnificent Salle Des Etoiles with sporting stars such as Kylian Mbappe in attendance to celebrate with all of the winners.
DAZN was recognised for a splendid first year since launch, taking home the award for the “Best Sports Project.” The award recognised the company who had “delivered an outstanding product that has innovatively provided sports content to its audience,” and “provided the audience with a rich sports experience.”
Since launch just over a year ago, DAZN has gone from strength to strength, acquiring a fantastic range of the very best sporting rights and launching in five territories across the world and becoming a big player within the sporting industry in a small amount of time.
In addition to the company-wide award, there was also individual success to celebrate. DAZN’s very own Chief Commercial Officer, John Gleasure, walked away with the prestigious “Media Executive of the Year.” John, one of the founding members of DAZN, was honoured as the most forward-thinking, hard-working and passionate executive within the industry this year! Many congratulations to John!
In addition to the DAZN celebrations, the wider Perform Group also managed to pick up an award at the ceremony, taking home the “Sports Media Company of the Year” accolade after a fantastic 12 months!
Many congratulations to all of the winners and a massive thank you to TV Sports Awards for hosting such a fantastic occasion.
