Currently it sounds like common sense to point out Brazil as THE place to do new business in sports – mainly stimulated by the 2014 football World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games. This presentation not only shows figures that confirm such perception, but also points out the challenges of the Brazilian marketplace and how to deal with those.

  7. 8. July 2011 SPORT IN BRAZIL: Why is that good BUSINESS? Sport & Business in Brazil Domestic Football   Football (soccer) is by far the dominant sport in Brazil, and even though, in many aspects, the organization of the sport is still far behind the major European countries, the ‘football business’ is one that has been growing at a very fast pace in recent years.   The professionalization of clubs, investment (still moderate) in their marketing departments and the growth of the economy and subsequently people’s purchasing power have pushed the domestic Brazilian football business to a level that allows it to be compared with top European countries.   On average, revenues have increased in every area (ticketing, licensing, merchandising, club membership, etc), but more importantly in two sources of revenue: Sponsorship and Media Rights.
  8. 9. July 2011 SPORT IN BRAZIL: Why is that good BUSINESS? Sport & Business in Brazil Domestic Football (cont.)   In 2010, the 20 clubs participating in the Brazilian Serie A, a.k.a. Brasileirão, ranked third in the ranking of global shirt sponsorship published by the research company Sport und Markt.   The 20 clubs raised EUR 105 million from shirt sponsors – more than clubs playing in the Italian Serie A or in the Spanish league, La Liga. 2010 Shirt Sponsorship Ranking source: Sport und Markt, Jan. 2011 Leagues (country) EUR million Premier League (ENG) 128 Bundesliga (GER) 118 Brasileirão (BRA) 105 Serie A (ITA) 62 Ligue 1 (FRA) 59 La Liga (ESP) 57

Source: Sport und Markt, Jan. 2011 Brazil also has a club in the top 5 biggest earners from shirt sponsorship. In 2010, SC Corinthians received nearly R$ 50 million. However, it’s important to notice that recently Brazilian clubs have started to negotiate several parts of their jerseys where they feature the sponsors’ logos – such as shoulders, sleeves, shorts, etc – and not only the chest, as happens in some of the top European leagues and in UEFA competitions. The new Barcelona deal with Qatar Foundation (the first in the club’s history), estimated at EUR 30M/year, is set to bring the club to the top of the 2011 list and it could potentially bring the Spanish League to 3 rd place.
  11. 12. July 2011 SPORT IN BRAZIL: Why is that good BUSINESS? Sport & Business in Brazil - Domestic Football (cont.) The top Brazilian clubs are also set to enjoy a major increase in their Media Rights earnings. After tense negotiations that caused the demise of Clube dos 13 (the association of clubs, formerly in charge of negotiating the rights), all major clubs have individually agreed 4-year deals with incumbent rights’ holders TV Globo, which is thought to be paying, in total, over R$ 1 billion per season (about EUR 450M). The current contract between Globo and Clube dos 13 (2009-11) is worth approximately EUR 210M per year.

  23. 24. July 2011 SPORT IN BRAZIL: Why is that good BUSINESS? Challenges Although Brazil may be the most ‘Western’ of the BRIC countries, it is rather challenging to establish any business in the country (it is difficult for Brazilian nationals too).   Brazil is placed only in 127 th position (out of 183 economies) in the World Bank Ranking that measures the ‘ease of doing business’ in each country (DB 2011 Ranking).   The language (Portuguese) – and, more importantly, the inability of the average population, and even some high executives, to speak English or any other foreign language – is only the first barrier faced by foreign companies that wish to establish business in Brazil . The World Bank’s report on ease to do business reveals that Brazil is a complex country for those looking to initiate an activity there.   Compared to other BRIC countries (dark blue), Brazil ranks better only than India, while it is behind both Russia and China. Brazil also ranks worse than other important South American economies, such as Argentina and Chile. Ease of Doing Business – Global Rank source: Doing Business 2011, The World Bank
  24. 25. July 2011 SPORT IN BRAZIL: Why is that good BUSINESS? Opening a limited liability company in Brazil, for instance, takes on average 120 days, whereas in Chile it takes only 22 days, and in Argentina, 26. The average time needed to open a company in Latin American countries is 57 days, while in OECD countries (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development) the average time needed is less than 14 days. In China, one can open a company in 38 days, in average, and in India that would take 29 days. Another aspect where Brazil ranks quite badly in World Bank’s DB Ranking is on ‘paying taxes’, at position 152.   According the report, the total time it takes to prepare, file and pay the corporate income tax, value added tax and social security contributions total an astonishing 2,600 hours per year. The average in Latin American and Caribbean countries is 385 hours while in OECD countries the average is of only 200 hours per year.   The average amount of taxes on profits (21.4%) is slightly higher than the rest of Latin America, while the amount of taxes and mandatory contributions on labour sum up astonishing 41% of commercial profits. However, despite the bureaucracy, Brazil ranks relatively well when it comes to ‘protecting investors’ (position 74 of 183). Switzerland, for example, is only in 167 th position. Nonetheless, in that category, Brazil still ranks worse than India (44), Mexico (also position 44) and Chile (28), while it is better than China (93) or Argentina (109).

  25. 26. July 2011 SPORT IN BRAZIL: Why is that good BUSINESS? The ‘Brazilian way’ Many have heard about the ‘Brazilian way’ of doing things, a.k.a. ‘ jeitinho brasileiro ’.   Depending on how the term is used, it can have different connotations. The term may invoke creativity, fun, friendliness, improvisation (which could be a good quality, but also implies lack of planning) as well as lack of punctuality, bureaucracy and corruption.   Sometimes the term is used to exemplify one of these ‘qualities’ or ‘flaws’. Sometimes it refers to a combination of them.   In general, Brazil is perceived as a country where ‘who you know’ is far more important than ‘what you know’. However, it is clear that the best is to have both: knowledge and network ! Walt Disney’s character Zé Carioca symbolizes the ‘jeitinho brasileiro’.
