The 2019 Campeonato Brasileiro Série A (officially the Brasileirão Assaí 2019 for sponsorship reasons) is the 63rd season of the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, the top level of professional football in Brazil, and the 16th edition in a double round-robin since its establishment in 2003. The competition started on 27 April and will end on 8 December 2019.[1]

The top six teams as well as the 2019 Copa do Brasil champions will qualify to the Copa Libertadores. The next six best-placed teams not qualified for Copa Libertadores will qualify for the Copa Sudamericana and the last four will be relegated to Série B in 2020. Palmeiras are the defending champions.

Teams[edit]

Twenty teams will compete in the league – the top sixteen teams from the previous season, as well as four teams promoted from the Série B.

Fortaleza became the first club to be promoted after a 1–2 win against Atlético Goianiense on 3 November 2018.[2] Goiás was promoted on 17 November,[3] and Avaí and CSA on 24 November.[4]
