The column found that the change from Vasco to Flu occurred because it would be a way for Record not to show a game on Saturday night. There is dissatisfaction at Edir Macedo’s broadcaster with the rates reached so far with the matches broadcast in this range, which did not reach Ibope’s double digits.
In all, four games from Fluminense, Vasco, Botafogo and Flamengo were shown. The record was of the team Rubro-Negro, last Saturday (27), in the tie against Boavista: 9 points of average in the Greater Rio de Janeiro. All other three games scored just 6 points below the expected Ibope.
Macaé vs. Fluminense was moved to Tuesday this week to open up the possibility of the game taking place in stadiums in the capital. However, the City Hall of Rio ended up decreeing that local games can only take place in the city from April 9th. With that, Macaé x Fluminense will play in Volta Redonda.
With Record, I had already opted to change the match that will be shown in this eighth round and also on TV only to be entitled to one game per round, the option was to seek a better result during the week – where the matches have managed to pass the 10 mark audience points more easily.
Record has a contract with Carioca until 2022. This year, the broadcaster pays R $ 11 million for 15 games. Next year, that amount rises to R $ 15 million. In addition to open TV, the teams bet is to earn more with pay-per-view packages.
