“It is not just an arrangement in a large-scale network that will make the Brazilian product interesting. This is just the beginning of a work, it takes time, depends on the stability and clarity of the product quality, Brazilian football still lacks a lot of that, although its form is understandable And it’s proven really well.”
For sports marketing specialist Fabio Wolff, a novelty is a good deal as long as it is well crafted by the broadcaster. “Broadcasting the matches of the Brazilian championship abroad can increase the interest of foreign brands, provided that this distribution is clearly done in such a way that the images of the matches arrive frequently and are well distributed. This has been a problem that we have seen so little competition outside the country, and since this competition In which a foreign company has bought the rights, it increases the distribution channels. And if it increases, it is very likely that we will have demand from foreign companies interested in the tournament.”
