Copa do Nordeste (English: Cup of the North-East), also known as Campeonato do Nordeste (English: Championship of the North-East) or Copa Nordeste (English: Northeastern Cup), is a Brazilian football competition contested between Northeastern region teams (exclude teams from Maranhão and Piauí, which geographic belong to the North East region but played at Copa Norte).

History[edit]

The competition was first played in 1976, as Torneio José Américo de Almeida Filho. It was played again in 1994. From 1997 to 1999, the Campeonato do Nordeste champions granted qualification to Copa Conmebol.

From 2000 to 2002, the Campeonato do Nordeste champions granted qualification to the Copa dos Campeões.

The competition returned in 2010, after being defunct since 2003.[1] Copa do Nordeste returned again in 2013. From the 2014 Copa do Nordeste winner will get a spot in the Copa Sudamericana.

Competition format[edit]

In 2010, all 16 clubs play against each other once. The four best played teams qualify to the playoff stage, which is played in one leg, starting with the semifinals.[1]

The first and second-placed clubs play all their playoff games at home.[1]
