How to watch Cristiano Ronaldo playing in Japan?

Watching Ronaldo play from Japan could be frustrating... Japanese fans feel the void due to the absence of platforms covering all his matches. Licensing hurdles have been denying football enthusiasts the thrill of witnessing Ronaldo's magic in its plenitude, leaving them yearning for a glimpse of a generation's idol.

Japan is a great place to visit all year round. Spring brings beautiful cherry blossoms, summer is a time of numerous local festivals and breathtaking fireworks, autumn is when you enjoy wonderful seafood and varieties of food, and winter offers the world’s best powder snow for skiing. However, given the sauna-like humidity and heat of summer, autumn through spring are probably the best times to visit Japan, which coincidentally coincides with the Saudi Arabian football season, in which Cristiano Ronaldo's Al Nassr belongs.

Is It Possible To Watch C. Ronaldo's Games In Japan?

Currently, there is unfortunately no platform in Japan that regularly shows ALL the games where Cristiano Ronaldo plays, however, there are a few ways to watch selected games from Japan.

If you are a big fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and are visiting or living in Japan and don't want to miss any of Ronaldo's matches, try the following channels, which we believe would cover quite a good percentage of his games.


SPOTV NOW is originally a South Korea-based streaming service. It shows games from both Japanese domestic leagues and international leagues, focusing primarily on European football and Major League Baseball (MLB) of the US. In addition to England's Premier League and Italy's Serie A, the streamer got on board in August 2023 to stream selected Saudi League matches.

Currently, the platform offers live and on-demand streaming of Saudi games featuring popular players such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, who also play in the Saudi Pro League. SPOTV also sublicenses the service to an internet broadcaster ABEMA TV, which allows viewers to watch the games on its platform.

Major streamers are not the only ones who can watch Cristiano Ronaldo's matches. In fact, many of the bookmakers operating in Japan offer live streaming of a bunch of international football games. While bookmakers are essentially places that provide odds on various predictions for sports tournaments and events, and allow users to bet on them. Live streaming is one of the key features that bookmakers offer for a more thrilling and live betting experience.

Please note, however, that while the VOD platforms mentioned above allow for post-match viewing, bookmakers usually offer only live streaming of matches which means any recording of games is not available to watch after the game.


DAZN is an international sports streaming powerhouse that also covers the Japanese market, and they show a variety of both domestic and international leagues. From 2023, they exclusively stream group stage matches from Asia Champions League, East Division. Meanwhile, the ACL West Division is where Middle Eastern elite teams play, including Al Ittihad (Saudi Arabia) and Al Hilal (Saudi Arabia), both of which are the new home of some of the most renowned players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

In this article, we have listed three ways to watch Cristiano Ronaldo's matches when in Japan. There are several other options, including LEMINO, another VOD service operated by a Japanese mobile phone operator, NTT DoCoMo. If you have an important match with Cristiano Ronaldo while in Japan, give the above methods a try.
