The big night for Copa Pódio’s big boys is fast approaching, and fans who plan on catching the event live online had best make haste.
According to the promoters of the tournament, the pay-per-view packages are already into the second round of sales and should soon see a price hike.
In order to watch the GP, all you need to do is visit the www.copapodio.com website and click “pay-per-view” on the menu. After registering, you will be taken to a page with payment options that include credit cards.
To assure that viewers are treated to a first-rate spectacle, the promotion is bringing back Marco de Vargas, a soccer commentator for Fox channel in Brazil, with color commentating from Raphael Abi-Rihan (in Portuguese) and Denis Asche (in English).
The master of ceremonies and announcer for the live event will be Jiu-Jitsu black belt Olivar Leite.
“Brazilian television channels are really focused on MMA and don’t seem to put much belief into Jiu-Jitsu’s potential. The reason we’re doing what we’re doing is to show them otherwise. Sooner or later everyone is going to end up adapting and giving the gentle art a fair shake,” Jeferson Maycá, one of Copa Pódio’s organizers, told GRACIEMAG.com.
The broadcast will begin at 4 PM on Sunday, January 13. Tickets to watch the event live at the arena are also available on the www.copapodio.com website.
Bear in mind: Each user name counts for one view access on the site. For security reasons, no pay-per-view packages will be sold on the day of the event.
