Campeonato Brasileiro back on UK television

August 4, 2008 at 13:04 3 comments

The Campeonato Brasileiro has finally returned to UK television thanks to SportsXchange (Sky Channel 456).

Their coverage started last weekend with the Fluminense vs Cruzeiro match.

I only found out about this by accident (we needed to re-transmit part of Sunday’s São Paulo vs Vasco game) so I don’t have many details – though I believe the channel is free.

Sportxchange also broadcast the games via their website.
