The Copa Libertadores is the most important club tournament in South America . Its name honors the memory of those who led the battles for Spanish-American and Brazilian independence on the continent. The competition was founded in 1960 under the name of Copa de Campeones de América . The first game in their history was played by Peñarol and Jorge Wilstermann . The Uruguayans ended up being the first champion.

32 teams are part of the competition each year (47 if the previous phase is also taken into account). First a group stage is played, in which the competitors are divided into eight groups of four. The two with the most points after playing the six corresponding days advance to the second round. All qualifiers are held in a roundtrip format. The final was played in a single match since 2019. The champion gets a place for the next edition, qualifies for the Recopa Sudamericana and access the FIFA Club World Cup . In the past, the current winner began to participate in the semifinals, which made it much easier to defend the title.

Since 2019, the package of television rights for the Copa Libertadores was separated from that of the Copa Sudamericana in the countries of South America. In Spanish-speaking countries, the tournament can be followed via ESPN and FOX Sports . In Brazil , broadcasts are shared between SBT, FOX Sports and CONMEBOL TV . In addition, in recent years the organization reached an agreement with Facebook to broadcast various games in these regions through the Facebook Watch service. At an international level, the competition is broadcast in various parts of the world through networks and platforms such as DAZN, beIN Sports, Canal + or Arena Sport .

The final of the 2018 Copa Libertadores went down in history because of what happened with the second leg. Boca Juniors and River Plate met for the first time in a continental final. When the Xeneize team entered the Monumental in Buenos Aires, the security operation failed and the bus was attacked with stones and various objects. The match had to be postponed as the players were not able to play due to injuries sustained. Alejandro Domínguez, president of CONMEBOL , decided to move the final out of Argentina as security guarantees were not met. On November 29, the Santiago Bernabéu de Madrid was designated as the venue, being the first final to be played outside South American territory. River Plate won in overtime 3-1 and became champion for the fourth time in its history.
