According to information revealed by Gaules, broadcasting such important tournaments has been far from cheap. Recently, at a rebroadcast of the FaZe vs. NAVI showdown at the Paris Major, Gaules and Jean-Michel ‘mch’ D’Oliveira discussed how much money the rights to such important tournaments can cost.

According to the broadcast, FURIA, BIG, and Heroic, it paid a $20 million fee in 2021 to join the Louvre Agreement. This agreement grants the teams a share of the ESL Pro Tour revenue.

After it was estimated that each team had to pay a little over $6 million to be part of the agreement, Gaules revealed a very interesting fact. The Brazilian streamer claims that he has already paid that $6 million in broadcasting rights over the past five years, and Gaules stressed that he had paid it in full and not through financing.

As a result of these statements, Gaules amusingly says that with so much money invested, they may be given a place in BLAST Premier.

On the other hand, a couple of days ago, Gaules informed all his followers that he would travel to Paris to do the live broadcast of the Playoffs of the last CS:GO Major. For Gaules, it will be the second time he will be doing the live broadcast in person.
