Picking system between Sky and DAZN
In the preliminary round of the Champions League there will be a negotiated picking system between Sky and DAZN. On the first day of the group match, Sky will have the first right to vote for a match – both on Tuesday and Wednesday – while DAZN will broadcast the remaining matches live. This scenario is repeated on match days three and five.
On match days two, four and six, DAZN will be allowed to select its favourite match on Tuesday before Sky follows. On Wednesday, the first right to vote will go to Sky again, while DAZN will show the remaining games as on all group match days. As far as conferences are concerned, Sky will have the rights throughout the season if at least two games are played at the same time.
