Updated 13 Jan 2009 – Good news for anyone who has been missing their weekly dose of Brazilian football!


I have just had news that the 2008 Campeonato Brasileiro will be available via the internet in the UK and the rest of Europe (& perhaps even the USA).


The company who will broadcast the games is called Performgroup. I don’t have any details about them but here’s their site.

also try this:


and this:

and this, which apparently shows both the Saturday and Sunday games live: 

and this (it looks legit but i can’t vouch for it): 

if you don’t mind watching in Italian, you could try this: and click on ‘Programmazione’ to find the games 

The Campeonato Brasileiro has just returned to the TV screens in the UK. Sky Sports SportsXchange are now showing our Saturday and Sunday games. 

There is also Channel 4’s ‘Goalisimo’ – though I’m not sure how much of the Brasileiro they show.

Also found this site, which has a collection of various channels showing live games (though the image quality varies)

The Times online shows highlights of our games – so, if you want to hear yours truly and Bira Brasil then head here  or look for South American/Latin club football highlights if they have moved the link

    Good news indeed. Do you know of any sites that let you watch the games after they happen? I know that globoesporte lets you if you sign up for their web packages, but I can’t do that without a CPF.
