Athletico Paranaense agrees FTA football rights deal with Globo

Brazilian Série A football club Athletico Paranaense has confirmed a six-year deal with media company Globo for domestic free-to-air rights to its home matches.

The agreement has been signed ahead of the start of the 2019 Série A season on April 28 and will run through to 2024. The club says it is yet to reach an agreement with Globo for its pay-television rights.

The deal means Palmeiras remains the only Série A club yet to reach an agreement with Globo for the 2019 season.

As part of its domestic rights deals with the clubs from 2019 to 2024, Globo will hold non-exclusive, Portuguese-language international rights to all Série A matches.
