MyCujoo OTT acquires rights to Brazil women’s league, men’s fourth tier

Football streaming platform MyCujoo has acquired multi-year worldwide digital rights to several Confederação Brasileira de Futebol (CBF) properties, including the top two tiers of women’s football and the men’s fourth-tier, Série D, it announced on Friday.

Under the deal, which starts this year, the platform will stream nearly 700 matches per season from the following competitions: on the men’s side – the Brasileirão Série D, the under-23 league (Aspirantes), under-20 cup, and the under-17 league and cup; and on the women’s side – Campeonato Brasileiro de Futebol Feminino Série A1, Série A2, as well as the under-18 league.

MyCujoo already broadcasts content from more than 10 state federations across the country.

Brazilian broadcaster TV Bandeirantes (Band) has also reached an agreement with the CBF for broadcast rights over three years to some of the same competitions.
