Well, apparently CBF's millionaire contracts with various sponsors are simply not enough. Now they've decided to steal one of the clubs' few sources of income. Is Ricardo Teixeira actively TRYING to force Brazilian clubs into bankrupcy? :mad:

This was published today in Globo's "Panorama Esportivo" column:

+++++++++++
CLUBS GET RIPPED OFF
The director of CBF's Marketing Department, Jose Carlos Salim, may cause a great confusion in Brazilian Football. Because of one of his decisions, the clubs who play at home in the 2nd and 3rd rounds of the Brazilian clubs are already losing money, and the controversy promises to get thicker in the competition's decisive stages.

The problem began last month, when the clubs that are participating in the Brazilian Cup received a memo from the federation, alerting them about the new decision: now the clubs are forbidden to sell any of the advertising spaces around the field. CBF has closed an exclusive deal with Traffic, the sports-marketing company that works with the federation; Traffic will get ALL the ad spaces, CBF gets all the money and the clubs will only get a small percentage. :frustrat:

This is a strange decision, because according to the 5th paragraph of article 57 of CBF General Competitions' Regulation, "CBF will not participate in any of the incomes from matches of official competitions".

In the Brazilian Cup, many sports-marketing companies, such as FlagSports, Koch Tavares, Sportplus and Estatica Brasil (all of them Traffic's competitors) negotiated with each club individually. FlagSports, for example, paid in advance to Sampaio Correa R$45 thousand of the R$90 thousand they agreed to pay for the rights to the game against Corinthians (that happened in February 2nd).
– On January 24th the club warned us about the new ruling, scared to discover that now they would only get a total of R$38 thousand from Traffic, less than half what we had offered! – complains FlagSports director Thomaz Jarussi. :greed:

River (PI), that had an offer of R$45 thousand from FlagSports for the advertising spaces of wednesday's match against Flamengo, now only knows that they'll be getting less money... the date when the money will actually be PAID wasn't informed by the federation.
– Now it's been proven without a doubt that these people are only there to rip off the clubs – stated Thomaz Jarussi.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Lemme get this straight... CBF closes an "exclusive and non-negotiable" contract with a marketing company, for LESS money than the clubs were receiving – selling something that essentially wasn't theirs to sell?!?

I hope the clubs sue CBF's ass off. Oh I forgot, CBF recently released new "rules" determining that any club that sues CBF will be severely punished, and possibly forbidden to participate in any competitions. :devil: :fero:

It is also against the law.
If the stadium is private, the owner, for Example Sao Paulo owns the propaganda space and he does what he wants.
If the stadium is from governament, It is the govern that sells the space and the clubs receive it using deals with the governament.
