RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Flamengo's debut in games played in the state of Rio on Saturday, January 18th, against Macaé, with its U-20 team, will not be broadcast.
Among the 11 clubs in the state-wide competition, the red-and-black was the only one that failed to reach an agreement with Rede Globo during the negotiations of rights for open and closed TV, besides pay-per-view.
As the Pelé Law states that matches may only be broadcast with the authorization of both parties involved, Flamengo will not be allowed to broadcast its own matches or sign . . .
