Globo buys Brazilian World Cup rights

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.
