The CONMEBOL Libertadores Femenina, named as Copa Libertadores Femenina (Portuguese: Copa Libertadores Feminina or Taça Libertadores Feminina) is an annual international women's association football club competition in South America. It is organized by the South American Football Federation (CONMEBOL). The competition started in the 2009 season in response to the increased interest in women's football. It is the only CONMEBOL club competition for women.

The tournament is the women's version of the Copa Libertadores which is organized since 1960. Beginning in 2019 clubs will not gain entry to the men's Libertadores, if they don't also have a women's team.[1] The change was made to strengthen the women's Libertadores.

History

The old logo using the longer name.

The competition was officially announced in March 2009,[2] and it was approved by CONMEBOL's Executive Committee on July 3 of that year.[3] CONMEBOL decided that the competition's first edition will be played in Santos and Guarujá, Brazil from October 3 to October 18, 2009.[3][4] The competition was organized by CONMEBOL, FPF, CBF and Santos Futebol Clube.[3]

Colombian team Formas Íntimas is the only team to appear in all editions up to 2014.

Format

Chile's former president Sebastián Piñera with Colo-Colo (2012) - the first non-Brazilian club to win the trophy.

In 2009 and 2010 the tournament was played by ten teams, one from each CONMEBOL country, divided in two groups of five clubs each.[5] The two best-placed teams of each group qualify to play the semifinal and the winners then play the final, while the losers play the third-place game.[5]

From 2011 to 2018 twelve teams played the tournament and were divided into three groups of four. The group winners and best runner-up advanced to the semi-finals.

The 2015 edition was the first to be held outside Brazil. Medellin in Colombia have made an official bid, with cities in Paraguay, Chile and again Brazil interested as well.[6] Medellin was then announced host just before the 2014 edition.[7]

From 2019 the tournament was expanded from 12 to 16 teams.[8]
