April 21, 2021 - May 26, 2021 - The Copa Libertadores, South America’s premier club competition, kicks off, featuring 32 teams from all 10 CONMEBOL member associations battling to be crowned continental champions.

CONMEBOL member associations include Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraquay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.

Teams from Argentina and Brazil are traditionally dominant in the tournament, sharing 45 of 61 titles between them since 1960.

Brazilian heavyweights Palmeiras are the defending champions after victory over rivals Santos in last season’s final to win the title for the second time.
