Flamengo and eight other clubs requested the suspension of the Brazilian Championship during the Copa América, due to team absences during the national team tournament. However, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF), on Thursday night (29), rejected the request. The entity issued a note explaining the reasons.

SEE THE CBF NOTE:

The Brazilian Confederation of Football (CBF), in response to the letter sent on February 15 by Serie A clubs, requesting changes to the 2024 National Men's Football Calendar, due to the 48th edition of the Copa América de Seleções, is hereby publicly providing the necessary clarifications.

The entity appreciates and considers this broad and permanent dialogue between Clubs, Federations and CBF essential for the improvement and development of the Calendar and of all Brazilian Football and its competitions. The preparation of the Brazilian competition calendar is extremely complex, needing to be adequate and harmonized with the calendars published by FIFA and CONMEBOL, and also with specific requirements of Brazilian legislation (Lei Pelé and Lei Geral do Esporte).

Upon receiving the proposal and out of respect for those involved, CBF immediately activated different internal areas of the entity to carry out studies and simulations, which takes time. It also consulted the commercial partners involved in the competition, including the main company holding the broadcasting rights to Série A of the Copa do Brasil.


The calendar for the 2024 men's football competitions was released in October 2023 , four months ago, and managed, for the second consecutive year, to avoid conflicts with FIFA dates, thus honoring the commitment to its affiliates and clubs.

Thus, in response to the request from the Series Clubs A, we highlight the following points:

The clubs did not consider changing the dispute model for the FIFA Intercontinental Cup (Club World Cup). Teams from South America, to reach the final, will have to play three matches, unlike previous years. If the winner of the Copa Libertadores is a Brazilian team, which has occurred in the last five editions, and if the club is also a finalist in the 2024 Copa do Brasil, the proposal presented would not be viable;

The Copa do Brasil 2024, there would be an interval of 4 (four) months between the quarter-finals and the semi-finals, which generates a profound loss of interest among spectators, devaluing the competition and potentially causing losses to clubs, sponsors and rights holders;

There would be damage to the dynamics of the competitions as it would result in an interval of practically a month between rounds of Series A of the Brazilian Championship;

The CBF took great care to consult the main company that holds the rights broadcasting of Série A and the Copa do Brasil. Unfortunately, the intended change directly affects the fulfillment of the contracts, as well as the contracts signed with the sponsors who did all the planning based on the dates previously announced by the CBF;

The proposal to change the 2024 calendar was sent after the start of several state and regional championships and on the eve of the start of the 1st phase of the Copa do Brasil, which could generate uneven adjustments that would not involve the entire national football calendar and all its competitions;

< The change would result in the extension of the season for 2 (two) clubs, impacting defined vacation dates for athletes and coaching staff, which could lead to serious problems involving labor rights, and would generate impacts for the 2025 Calendar;

In the proposal presented, the round of 16 and quarter-final stages would take place exactly during the Copa América 2024, with the clubs equally missing, but in a championship with knockout stages and with high financial prizes;

< br>

In view of these and other reasons set out in full in the attached letter, the CBF informs that it is not possible to accept the request to change the 2024 calendar. However, it remains open to dialogue, as has always happened, to discuss broadly with Federations, Clubs, partners and athletes the improvement of competitions and the national calendar.

Flamengo finished its preparations this Tuesday (16) to face São Paulo on Wednesday (17), in the third round of the Brasileirão. Varela and Wesley trained normally and are available to Tite for the match at Maracanã. With this, the coach can count on the right-back duo for the first time after eight games.

Tite led the last training session of Flamengo's preparations on Tuesday afternoon (16). After falling ill with a fever in Goiânia, Varela was removed from the game against Atlético-GO, but participated in the activities without restrictions. Wesley, vetoed from the debut after traveling to the capital of Goiás, also worked with the rest of the squad.


Varela and Wesley are once again options for Tite after eight games. This is because the coach last linked the right-back duo on February 25, in the 2-0 victory over Fluminense, in the tenth round of the Guanabara Cup. Therefore, since then, Flamengo has only had the Uruguayan available in most matches.


Wesley was the main reason for the full-back pair to be missing. The young baseman suffered two muscle injuries in a row and forced Tite to improvise in the sector. In this way, the coach adapted midfielder Evertton Araújo, 21 years old, to the position. However, left-back Ayrton Lucas also played on the right side at times.

With Varela and Wesley available, Flamengo will face São Paulo at 9:30 pm (Brasília time) this Wednesday (17).
