Dugout has today announced a new partnership with Global Sports Rights Management (GSRM) which sees premium content from Brazil’s Brasileirão shared in all international markets outside of Brazil.
The new agreement will give Dugout’s network of more than 110 premium publishing partners access to the Brasileirão’s best goals, highlights and behind-the-scenes content to pair with their editorial coverage.

Now, for the first time, fans will be able to view multi-team compilation videos from all Brasileirão clubs and leading players including Bruno Henrique, Gabriel Barbosa and Matheus Henrique.
