Another firm is joining the roster of media tenants at One World Trade Center.

Sports media company DAZN Group signed a 10-year lease, the Durst Organization and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said in a statement. DAZN is taking 50,700 square feet on the 72nd floor and part of the 71st floor.

The landlord was represented by Durst’s Eric Engelhardt and Karen Kuznick — and the Newmark Knight Frank team of David Falk, Jason Greenstein, Peter Shimkin, Hal Stein and Travis Wilson. DAZN was represented by Savills Studley’s John Johnson Jr., Nate Brzozowski and Nicholas Farmakis.

DAZN, headed by former ESPN President John Skipper, streams sports through its live and on-demand service. The growing company has nearly 3,000 employees across more than 30 countries.

Other media and technology companies — including Conde Nast, Aaptiv and Sailthru — have already moved to the tower. Earlier this month, digital marketing firm BounceX inked an 11-year lease for 79,000 square feet in the building.

WeWork was close to leasing space at One WTC, too, but the bid fell through after Durst said it received better offers.
