Brazilian Broadcaster Globo, Fox Sports Look To Trade Football Rights
Brazilian broadcaster Globo confirmed that it is negotiating with Fox Sports a "trade in the rights that both possess," according to Franceschini, Castro and Konchinski of UOL. If the negotiations go well, Sportv will go back to airing the Copa Libertadores and the Copa Sul-Americana, while Fox will have the rights to the Brasileiro and the Copa do Brasil. The negotiations were confirmed by Globo Sports Dir Marcelo Campos Pinto. Fox Sports "does not want a straight up trade" where it would give up its two tournaments "only" for the Brasileiro and Copa do Brasil. The two parties "disagree on what other competitions" could be included in the trade (UOL, 11/28).
