  • THE COMPANY’S PRODUCT, EDITORIAL AND DESIGN TEAMS BASED IN LEEDS ARE AMONG THE FIRST TO RELOCATE TO THE PURPOSE BUILT FACILITY
  • THE EXPANSION OF DAZN GROUP SIGNALS FURTHER INVESTMENT IN LEEDS’ THRIVING MEDIA SECTOR

London, 18 January 2019 – DAZN Group, the digital leader in global sports media, has today announced that it will begin occupying a brand new office at the White Rose Office Park in Leeds from Monday 28th January.

DAZN Group’s editorial, product and design teams based in Leeds will be among the first to move into the bespoke 40,000 sq ft space, which has the capacity to house up to 350 staff. The relocation gives DAZN Group the much needed capacity to further expand in a purpose built environment after outgrowing its city centre location.

The media centre will be home to employees from across the company’s consumer brands, including Goal, one of the largest sport websites in the world, and DAZN, the world’s first pure sport live and on-demand streaming service. DAZN is currently available in seven countries including the U.S., Japan, Germany and Italy, and is launching in Spain and Brazil in early 2019. The move marks a significant investment in Leeds and adds to the city’s reputation as one of the UK’s leading media and creative hubs.

Neil Colligan, Chief Operations Officer, DAZN Group, said: “The new office in Leeds is an important milestone in DAZN Group’s journey to become the world’s biggest digital sport media business, with the best sports streaming product in the market. Our new home at the White Rose Office Park will provide us with the space and facilities to continue to expand our global footprint, whilst investing in Leeds as one of the UK’s most influential media hubs.”

DAZN Group is the digital leader in global sports media and one of the fastest growing sports media companies in the world. Headquartered in London, it has almost 3,000 employees in over 30 countries. The new Leeds office is a further demonstration of the company’s rapid growth, which hired more than 750 roles in the U.K. in the past year.

DAZN joins national and global businesses at the White Rose Office Park including HSBC, O2 and HMRC. The site’s facilities include a private on-site nursery and two on-site restaurants, and is located in close proximity to the White Rose Shopping Centre.
