Almost three months before the beginning of the Brazilian Professional Football League (Brasileirão), the Globo Group failed to run an agreement to broadcast the Bragantino and Coritiba clubs football matches, which recently managed to ascend to the professional football category and are part of the Brazilian championship.
These teams are added to Athletico Paranaense, which, since 2019, has not partnered with Globo to air its matches on the Premiere channel (under the PPV mode), although it did run an agreement with the Group for FTA TV, and came to terms with Turner to broadcast its matches on pay TV. In addition, Flamengo also did not agree with Globo to air its matches at the Torneo Carioca, which is currently being played and faces the main football clubs in Rio de Janeiro. As reported by the specialized website Maquina do Esporte (UOL), Globo does not have TV rights of 28% of Brasileirao 2020 matches guaranteed.
The Brazilian Group is negotiating for the FTA TV rights (through TV Globo), Pay TV (through SporTV) and premium and PPV (through Premiere) with Bragantino, while negotiations with Coritiba are focused on TV Globo and Premiere TV, since the team already has an agreement with Turner for pay TV. At the moment, Globo is not sure of broadcasting 108 of the 380 matches that the Brasileirao 2020 edition will have, scheduled to start in May.
