CONMEBOL is the administrative and controlling body for South American association football. It currently runs four men's senior and one under-20 club competitions: the Copa Libertadores, Copa Sudamericana, Recopa Sudamericana and U-20 Copa Libertadores, as well as the Suruga Bank Championship in conjunction with the Japan Football Association.[1] CONMEBOL was also responsible for the running of several other competitions. The most notable of these defunct tournaments is the Supercopa Libertadores, which was discontinued in 1997. The Copa CONMEBOL, which founded in 1992, was discontinued in 1999, and the Intercontinental Cup—co-organized with UEFA—was discontinued in 2004. In addition to the Intercontinental Cup, Super Intercontinental Cups were played in 1968 and 1969. Minor tournaments were organized throughout the 1990s such as the Copa de Oro, Copa Master de Supercopa, Copa Master de CONMEBOL open only to past winners of CONMEBOL tournaments. The Copa Interamericana was a tournament held between the Copa Libertadores champions and the CONCACAF champion that was last played in 1998. Other small tournaments included the Copa Merconorte open only to clubs from Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela as well as the invitation of teams from Costa Rica, Mexico, and the United States. The Copa Mercosur was played only by teams from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay. Both of these tournaments only ran from 1998 to 2001 and later replaced by the Copa Sudamericana. No club has ever won all of these competitions; Boca Juniors and São Paulo won 7 different CONMEBOL tournaments while Independiente trails with 6.[2][3] Excluded is the FIFA Club World Cup, a FIFA club competition.[4]

Boca Juniors is the most successful club, winning 18 competitions,[2] while fellow Argentine club Independiente, which holds the record for the most Copa Libertadores victories, is the second most successful,[5][6][7][8] with 16 titles and São Paulo is third, winning 11 competitions.[3] Argentine clubs are the most successful, having won 63 titles and Brazilian clubs are second for most successful with 50 titles.
