The Brazilian Futsal Confederation (CBFS) has agreed a four-year rights deal with Brazilian live streaming company TV NSports.
The two parties had been in talks since last year, when test events were carried out covering the likes of the Copa do Brasil Sicredi, Supercopa Magnus de Futsal and the Copa do Brasil Feminino.
A long-term pact has now been signed, which, in addition to CBFS domestic events, also covers Brazil’s men’s and women’s national futsal teams. Matches and events will initially be offered free of charge via TV NSports, with users only needing to register on the platform.
In November, the Brazilian Olympic Committee (COB) said it would launch an online streaming channel with TV NSports offering coverage of domestic sports events, with the potential of also showcasing international competitions. TV NSports also has ties to other sports bodies including the Brazilian Volleyball Confederation (CBV) and the LBF, the top division of women’s basketball.
TV NSports has also streamed Brazilian football through its rights deal for the Campeonato Catarinense, the state league in Santa Catarina.
Last year, TV NSports was among the unsuccessful bidders for international rights to Brazilian football’s Série A and Série B. The five-season offer involved work with an independent sports rights consultant on distribution and included a minimum guarantee element.
In the event, the international broadcast rights were awarded to the Global Sports Rights Management agency with the international betting rights sold to Stats Perform, the sports data and technology company.
