BRAZIL

In the territory of Brazil, TV Globo, the Official Broadcaster of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™, is duly authorised by FIFA to issue Public Viewing Event licences in relation to any matches of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™.

All Exhibitors of Public Viewing Events shall comply with the FIFA Regulations set out on FIFA.com http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/organisation/publicviewing/index.html. A formal licence is only required for the following categories of Public Viewing Events:

Public Viewing Event licences, when required, need to be obtained from TV Globo. The application form is available on www.exibicaopublicafifa.com.br. Exhibitors of Commercial Public Viewing Events have to pay a fee that will be donated by FIFA and TV Globo to charity.

Please note that Non-Commercial Public Viewing Events, despite not requiring a formal licence, are conditional upon the Exhibitor’s full compliance with these FIFA Regulations for Public Viewing Events.
