Brazil’s Palmeiras signs six-year Globo rights deal

Campeonato Brasileiro Série A football club Palmeiras has signed a six-year rights agreement with Brazilian media company Globo.

The deal covers free-to-air and pay-television coverage of Palmeiras matches in the Campeonato Brasileiro.

The agreement begins with Palmeiras’ match against Botafogo on Saturday.

Palmeiras is currently top of the Série A table after five matches of the 2019 season.

The Máquina do Esporte website noted that Athletico Paranaense is now the only club that does not have an agreement in place for pay-television rights to its matches. The club did recently sign a six-year rights deal with Globo for free-to-air rights to its home matches.
