Brazil Embraces Naming 
The era of stadia naming rights has arrived in Brazil, writes MEI's João Frigerio. Ever since the stadia that are currently being built in Brazil were first planned, a lot has been said about naming rights and how that practice – common in the US and the UK and growing in several other European countries – could be fundamental to help clubs and other stadium owners to finance the construction of the new venues. 

Why Consider Russia
Russia is one of the world’s most important emerging markets, defined by both its size and its growth potential, writes MEI’s Jamie Thompson.
