Brazilian media giant Globosat has acquired the broadcast rights to the 2020 edition of the Uefa European Championship, the quadrennial international men's soccer tournament organised by Uefa.
The 24-team soccer championship will be available through the organisation’s linear channels, the free-to-air Globo and specialist pay-TV network SporTV, as well as its digital platform globoesporte.com., which will offer subscribers real-time information, video-on-demand (VOD) and exclusive content.
SporTV has shown every edition of the Euro since 1992, while the competition has been broadcast on Globo since 2012.
"We are delighted to renew our historic partnership with Globo and Globosat for the Uefa Euro,” said Guy-Laurent Epstein, director of marketing for Uefa Events. “Its comprehensive programming planning and massive reach will ensure a great platform for football fans in Brazil to attend the top Uefa competition."
The 16th edition of the European Championship will be played in June and July 2020. For the first time, the competition will be hosted by 13 countries, with the semi-finals and final to be played at the London home of English soccer, Wembley Stadium.
