A financial analysis of Brazilian football

I have been looking for reports on the business model of football clubs in South America for some time, in particular the larger (in an economic sense) South American nations such as Brazil, Mexico, or Chile.  Jérôme Osselaer has written a detailed analysis on the financial model of Brazilian clubs ranging from profit and loss analysis to revenue streams and capacity for future growth, especially in light of the upcoming World Cup and Olympic Games in 2014 and 2016, respectively.  It's well worth your time to read in order to gain some insight on a region that has always had significant weight on the football field but not necessarily the same off it, although, with today's news of a big transfer deal by Corinthians for Carlos Tevez, that might be changing.

Part I: A focus on the financials of Sport Club Corinthians

Part II: Revenue streams for top-flight Brazilian championship clubs

Part III: The new wave of stadium redevelopment and construction in Brazil

Part IV: Brazilian clubs' capacity for growth in the next 15 years
