The broadcasting market for sporting events is undergoing a rapid transformation process, with digital media becoming increasingly important.

One of the fundamental pillars of the sports market is the transmission of events through the most diverse media platforms, either through conventional media, such as television channels, or through new media, identified by transmissions via streaming, VOD, OTT, among others.

The sports media market has been undergoing a great and rapid transformation in recent years due to the importance that digital media has been assuming. However, conventional media still have enormous relevance for broadcasting competitions, being one of the main sources of revenue for sports entities.

In this context, aware of the trends regarding the rapid advance of new media, on the one hand, and knowing the importance of traditional media for sport, on the other, Carlezzo Advogados acts strongly in the sports media market, with experience in several transactions, especially:

  • Advising to several football clubs in their broadcast contracts for the matches of Series A and B of the Brazilian Championship
  • Advising to the football league in the negotiation and drafting of a contract for the broadcast of a competition
  • Advising to international groups in negotiating and drafting contracts, aiming at the international broadcast of Brazilian football competitions
  • Representation of a Serie A football club in proceedings before CADE (Brazilian antitrust authority) against an international media group regarding the broadcast rights of the Brazilian Championship
  • Severall analyzes and legal opinions for clubs and media groups regarding the law application to broadcast contracts.

Based on this experience and practical knowledge of how the sports market works, our office provides the following services:

  • Negotiation of media contracts, representing either media groups and sports entities
  • Analysis of the media market, new media and their trends
  • Risk assessment in the purchase of media sports rights
