Brazilian television station BandSports has announced that it has acquired the Brazilian rights for the Chinese Super League for the rest of 2016 and 2017, following a string of high-profile transfers from the country’s top flight to China.
BandSports will begin broadcasting one game per week, starting with Guangzhou R&F vs Jiangsu Suning at 4.30am local time on April 23, QQ Sports reports.
Jiangsu Suning are one of a number of CSL sides with a large contingent of Brazilian talent.
In the last transfer window alone, the likes of Jo, Ramires, Alex Teixeira, Gil, Gervinho, Ralf and Renato Augusto all moved to the Middle Kingdom, where former national team coaches Mano Menezes and Luis Felipe Scolari already ply their trade.
Last week Ma Chaine Sport became the first European television station to secure rights to the CSL, with two live games per day each weekend set to be aired from this weekend.
