CONMEBOL Copa Libertadores

It was in 1958 ten years after the Copa de Campeones (a one-off tournament held in Chile to find out the best club team in South America), when proposals were first made to design a competition that would follow suit allowing each nations league champion to take on those in other South American countries on an annual basis.

After all ten CONMEBOL nations agreed the first tournament kicked off in 1960 with seven champions from seven countries taking part. Today 47 teams from 10 countries participate with the winner qualifying for the FIFA World Club Cup.
