The Copa Sudamericana ("South American Cup") is an international football cup competition played annually by clubs of South America. It is the second most important competition for South American club teams, the first being the Copa Libertadores.
After the Copa Merconorte and the Copa Mercosur were discontinued, a Pan-American club cup competition was intended, under the name of Copa Pan-Americana, but unfortunately it did not happen. Instead, a South American clubs only tournament was created.
The tournament is played in two-legged knockout stages. In the first rounds of the competition the teams from the same country play against each other.
