Dazn to make about 50 roles redundant at London headquarters – deadlines

Exclusive: Global sports streaming organization DAZN will do about 50 redundant work at its London headquarters, the deadline could reveal.

Staff at Hammersmith, West London headquarters, have been told in the past few hours that deadlines have been met, and a four-week redundancy process has begun, with about 50 roles set to be potentially closed.

The figure represents about 5% of the UK workforce, most of whom work in London and only 2% of the global workforce of 2,500 people.

Where London has launched DAZN, it is understood that the decision has been driven by decentralization and a focus on other growth areas, such as Spain, Italy and Germany.

Before the start of next season’s La Liga football competition, around 50 people are being recruited to the Spanish office in reverse, and senior leaders have been sought across the growth market over the past few months. Even with the UK redundancy, non-UK hiring means there could be a net hiring gain across the entire business by the end of the year.

DAZN was launched as a punchy start-up in 2016 and has grown rapidly, grabbing sports rights across multiple regions and over the past few years has spread to 200 countries worldwide, including the United States, Italy, Spain, Brazil and Japan.

The company, run by CEO Shei Segev and headed by former Disney executive Kevin Mayer, now owns major territories in European football, Spanish La Liga, multiple basketball leagues, sports and tennis.
