The Brazilian media group, Bandeirantes has acquired the broadcasting rights of the FIFA Club World Cup 2021, which will start from February 3, 2022.
The FIFA Club World Cup UAE 2021 presented by Alibaba Cloud will take place in the UAE as Japan withdrew its rights due to the Covid-19 pandemic with seven teams playing eight matches to win the prestigious trophy.
As part of the deal, Bandeirantes will be broadcasting all the matches of the Cup across various platforms. The Band, BandSports, Rádio Bandeirantes, Rádio BandNews FM, and its digital channels and the deal also mark that for the first time the media group Globo will not be broadcasting a Club World Cup featuring a Brazilian team since 2000.
The first game will be played between the host association representatives, Al Jazira Club, and the OFC Champions League representatives, Auckland City FC.
The other teams who will be seen on the ground playing include CAF Champions League winners, Al Ahly SC, Concacaf Champions League champions CF Monterrey, AFC Champions League winners Al Hilal SFC, Copa Libertadores champions SE Palmeiras, and UEFA Champions League winners Chelsea FC.
