Soccer continues to find new fans in China. The growing sport is now making its way to Brazil, as Brazilian broadcaster Bandsports has acquired the rights to broadcast the Chinese Super League (CSL) for both the 2016 and 2017 seasons.
The deal will see the broadcaster air at least one game every week, beginning with table toppers Jiangsu Suning taking on Guangzhou R&F this weekend.
The package will also include a highlights show.
The CSL, one of the world’s emerging leagues, currently plays host to a wealth of Brazilian talent.
National team players Ramires, Jó, Paulinho and Ricardo Goulart all feature, while 2002 Fifa World Cup-winning manager Luiz Felipe Scolari is in charge of Guangzhou Evergrande.
