2019 Copa Libertadores de Beach Soccer

The CONMEBOL Libertadores de Beach Soccer, named originally and natively in Spanish as the Copa Libertadores de Fútbol Playa, is an annual continental beach soccer club competition, organised by the governing body for football in South America, CONMEBOL, founded in 2016.

Since 2017, the tournament is contested between the top-level domestic league/championship champions from each of the ten South American nations which are members of CONMEBOL. The reigning champions and an additional club from the host country also take part, taking the total number of participants to twelve.[1] It is therefore the premier club beach soccer championship in South America, the winners becoming continental champions.[2]

It is beach soccer's version of the better known Copa Libertadores in association football. Comparatively, in beach soccer, it is South America's version of Europe's Euro Winners Cup.

Brazilian club Vasco da Gama are the current champions and most successful team with three titles.[3]
