For both SporTV and Fox Sports, the agreements will allow them to air up to 50% of the matches exclusively, until the semifinal.

SporTV expanded its rights to broadcast Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana, thanks to a sub licensing agreement with Fox Sports. In addition, SporTV will begin offering Recopa tournament.

In turn, the rights of Copa do Brasil belong to Globosat, which sub-licensed them to Fox Sports. ESPN had aired the previous editions of this tournament but announced that it will not be part of its programming this year.
