Global Sports Rights Management (GSRM) is poised to secure the international broadcast rights to Brazilian football’s top two leagues after being chosen by the nominated clubs commission.
The clubs met via video conference on Friday afternoon to vote for their preferred proposal gave their backing to GSRM. The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) and the National Clubs Commission (CNC) said that the voting represents the “first phase of the selection process” in the awarding of the rights to the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A and B leagues.
GSRM will now undergo validation for the scope of work, governance and compliance checks and be asked to present financial guarantees before contracts are finalised and the rights awarded in a four-year deal from 2020 to 2023.
GSRM was set up by Hernán Donnari, previously a leading figure at Fox Sports Latin America, Matias and Raul Rivera, co-founders of the Fanatiz streaming platform, David Belmar, president of 1190 Sport, a Latin American sports rights management company, and Juan Arciniegas of Miami-based private investment firm 777 Partners.
