The second division of the Brazilian Championship is about to start and here you can find a guide for B Series 2020. The Brasileirão starts on August 8, 2020 for both divisions, with months of delay due to the pandemic of the new coronavirus and changes in the calendar.

CBF (Brazilian Football Confederation) chose to extend the calendar without having to change the format of the competition. It is worth remembering that this issue was raised, but the entity did not like it. Therefore, the competition in both rounds continues with 20 teams and 38 rounds, being extended until February 2021.

In addition, in this series B 2020 guide we will also inform about the competition's broadcasting rights, belonging to Grupo Globo. Matches are transmitted via SporTV and Premiere to subscribers.

This season the TV quotas will be divided equally among all teams participating in the competition. To remember, until the 2018 Brasileirão, the teams that were relegated from Series A to B, disputed Series B receiving the same quota as before being relegated. Thus, they would follow a greater investment power compared to those who were already there. However, Series B does not receive a CBF award as it does in Series A, only Globo's award to the first 4 teams at the end of the championship.

Like the A Series of the Brazilian Championship, because of the pandemic, B Series will also be an atypical competition compared to other years, with the calendar being extended, among other things. In addition, this season the second division will feature an unprecedented team, Cruzeiro, as it happened with Internacional in 2016.

The "gaucho" team didn't do well in the B Series in 2019, as they struggled against relegation for much of the competition.

Chapecoense is well known in the Brazilian football scene, for six consecutive years playing in the A Series and for great achievements. Like having won the Copa Sudamericana title and applying several goals to some of the biggest teams in Brazil. Unfortunately, one of the things that marked the club was also the air disaster in 2016.

Coach: Gilmar Dal Pozzo.
Oeste is a team that despite not having gone to the A Series, has managed to stay in the B Series since 2013.
