FIFA says broadcaster Globo has bought Brazilian media rights
for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
FIFA did not declare the value of the two-tournament deal, which
includes all media platforms. Globo has held rights to broadcast
each World Cup since 1970.
FIFA is marketing the 2018 and 2022 tournaments, being played in
Russia and Qatar, in a package. It struck United States deals worth
a combined $1.2 billion with Fox, Telemundo and Futbol de Primera
Rights for the Middle East and parts of Asia and Latin America
were sold for $1.7 billion last year.
FIFA earns about 90 percent of its income from commercial deals
tied to the World Cup.
