Check out the changes that could happen in Coritiba
SAF’s minimum investment drops by half
The contract with Treecorp Investimentos, owner of SAF do Coritiba, provides for an investment of R$1.3 billion over the next ten years in the club. In football, the minimum annual investment is R$120 million, but, in the event of relegation, this amount drops by half.
Therefore, next year, if Coxa plays in Series B, the minimum value of investment in football by the SAF will be R$60 million. This year, according to a survey by Pluri in partnership with Lance!, Alviverde invested R$35 million just to compose the squad, with 39 players.
The broadcasting rights for Série B were sold to the company Brax at the beginning of this year and each club received R$10 million. In total, in 2023, the company invested R$210 million in the second division.
In 2024, this amount will increase to R$230 million and clubs should receive around R$11 million, according to figures released by the Uol and confirmed by OneTwo Sports.

For comparison purposes, in 2022, when it returned to Série A, Coritiba won R$32.1 million only with broadcasts, not counting the broadcaster’s award for the final place in the table, which in the case of Alviverde was 16th place.
Awards in competitions
In addition to not receiving prizes in this year’s Brasileirão, in the event of relegation, the value of the Copa do Brasil prizes will be lower for Alviverde, as the CBF pays less to Series B teams in the first two phases.
This year, Coxa earned R$5.2 million on its way to the third phase of the competition, when it was eliminated by Sport. Next year, if you follow the same route, until the third phase, the prize drops to R$4.75 million.
In the first phase, the CBF pays R$1.4 million to clubs in Series A and R$750 thousand to those in Series B. In the second, the prize is R$1.7 million for elite teams and R$1 .4 million for those in the second division.
Coxa is runner-up in the Brasileirão, with 29 points in 34 games. In total, Alviverde has eight wins, five draws and 21 defeats. With four rounds to go, the team has a 99.97% chance of relegationaccording to the Mathematics department at the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG).
