The architecture of DAZN is based on Micro Frontends and unifies a range of technologies in order to deliver a seamless user experience.

This is an ambitious project with a fast release cycle that has scalability not only from a user point of view but also from a developer perspective. Imagine a tech start up culture but with the security and backing from a well established content and media agency.
