The Copa Macaé de Juvenis (or Macaé Youth Cup, in English) is a cup competition usually played between 18 and 24 Brazilian and international under-17 football clubs, most of them from Rio de Janeiro state. The competition is organized by the Liga Macaense de Desportos (Macaense Sporting League) with the Rio de Janeiro Football Federation.
The competition format changes almost every year. Normally, the clubs are divided in several groups of four or five teams, and the two best placed clubs of each groups qualify to the knockout stage.
All matches are usually played in July, in Macaé and other countryside Rio de Janeiro state cities, like Barra do Macaé, Campos dos Goytacazes, Carapebus, Córrego do Ouro, and Quissamã.
Usually traditional Brazilian clubs are invited, like Atlético Mineiro, Atlético Paranaense, Bahia, Botafogo, Corinthians, Coritiba, Cruzeiro, Flamengo, Fluminense, Grêmio, Internacional, and Vasco da Gama.
Among the non-Brazilian clubs which have disputed the competition, are América, Toluca and UNAM Pumas of Mexico, Pohang Iron and Steel Company (Posco) of South Korea and Shanghai Shenhua of China.
