DAZN Spain, the regional arm of the global sports streaming service, has announced it has secured the domestic rights to broadcast LaLiga 2, Spain’s second-tier soccer league.
The service will begin its coverage of the league on matchday 22, which is set to be played between January 12 and 15, and will cover all the league’s games through to the end of the season, including the playoffs for promotion into the top-tier LaLiga competition.
DAZN will also broadcast recaps of each game, as well as interviews and ancillary content around the league’s 22 teams.
DAZN will offer the league as an add-on to any of its existing packages, or LaLiga 2 fans will also have the ability to purchase a monthly plan to view only the league and no other DAZN content, for €9.99 ($8.58) per month.
LaLiga 2 is known as LaLiga Hypermotion for sponsorship purposes after the organizer of the top two tiers of Spanish soccer agreed a deal with video game giant EA to title sponsor both leagues.
Hypermotion is the motion capture technology used by the developer for its Sports FC video game., while the top-tier LaLiga is now known commercially as LaLiga EA Sports.

The French Football Federation (FFF) soccer governing body, meanwhile, also announced an agreement with DAZN France this week for the broadcast of its third-tier Championnat National.
DAZN, which already broadcasts France’s top-tier Ligue 1 and its women’s equivalent, the D1 Arkema, will show two matches per game week, one of which will be co-broadcast with French TV giant Canal Plus.
The partnership will be inaugurated on January 12 with the match between Red Star and Orléans, which it will broadcast exclusively.
The deal will last through to the end of the current 2023-24 season.
