Print Media Supporters
It is important to have a print media presence which ensures regular news dissemination with quality information, dedicated editorials and regular updates regarding various aspects of the competitions that FIFA organises. For this purpose, FIFA can appoint print media companies which acquire rights to be our Official Print Media Supporters for certain FIFA competitions in selected territories around the world.
Editora Abril S.A - Official FIFA Print Media Supporter in Brazil
For the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ and the FIFA Confederations Cup 2013, our exclusively appointed media supporter for the territory of Brazil is Editora Abril S.A., part of the Abril Group (Grupo Abril), the largest publisher in Latin America and one of its leading media companies. It is important to note that the agreement will not compromise the editorial independence of Editora Abril’s event coverage.
Editora Abril publishes some of the best-selling titles in Brazil, including Veja magazine and Brazil’s popular football newspaper Jornal Placar, which will both be valuable sources of news for these tournaments. Other key Editora Abril magazine titles will also benefit from a commercial association with the official marks of the FIFA Confederations Cup 2013 and the 2014 FIFA World Cup™.
In addition to these titles, the company plans to produce official licensed event publications to share the passion and excitement of these events with fans all over Brazil.
