Brazilian TV network Globo has once more secured exclusive rights to Brazilian soccer’s upcoming 2024 Supercopa do Brasil match between Palmeiras and São Paulo.
The deal, which was signed with the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF), covers the match between the current champions of the Brasileirão league competition, Palmeiras, and the winners of the Copa do Brasil tournament, São Paulo.
The match will take place on February 4 at the 66,658-capacity former 2014 World Cup venue, the Mineirão Stadium in Belo Horizonte.
Globo will hold rights across all of its various platforms.
Ednaldo Rodrigues, president of the CBF, said: “It is a pleasure, once again, to establish a new partnership here with Rede Globo for the broadcast of the Supercopa do Brasil, a competition that takes on a very large dimension every year and opens the Brazilian football season. The Super Cup has already become popular among fans and will be another celebration of our football.”
Globo’s director of sports rights, Fernando Manuel Pinto, added: “It is with great pride that we received from CBF the confirmation of the continuity of this partnership that allows us to bring, with the usual quality, the 2024 Super Cup to Brazilian fans through Globo’s various screens.”
Globo also held exclusive rights to the match in 2022 and 2023, with Palmeiras also in last year's edition, beating Flamengo 4-3.
The Supercopa has been held in its current form annually since 2020.
Last week, Brazilian justice minister Gilmar Mendes ordered Ednaldo Rodrigues to be reinstated as the president of the CBF, after overturning the previous ruling by the Rio de Janeiro Court of Justice.
Rodrigues was removed from his post last month by a Rio de Janeiro court, annulling the CBF assembly’s decision last year to elect Rodrigues president and instead naming Jose Perdiz – president of the Superior Court of Sports Justice – as interim head of the soccer body.
Rodrigues was supposed to lead the CBF until 2026, but the court felt the electoral process through which Rodrigues became president was illegal, upholding this decision a week later.
