|2017 Copa Verde|
The Copa Verde (English: Green Cup) is an annual regional knockout football competition that started in 2014 and played by 16 teams from the North and Central-West regions, plus Espírito Santo (Espírito Santo state was included because they competed in the old Copa Centro Oeste). Initially, the champion of the tournament gained a place in the next year's Copa Sudamericana. With the changes implemented by CONMEBOL in 2016 causes a competition no longer qualify in Copa Sudamericana from edition. The champion will now have a spot in the Round of 16 of the Copa do Brasil of the following year. The cup will be organized by the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF), with two-legged playoff games played from February to May between the 18 participating teams.
The tournament was created with the purpose of making a North Region version of the Copa do Nordeste, hence the name Verde, meaning green, is an allusion to the Amazon Forest. The competition was expanded to include clubs from the Central-West Region and from Espírito Santo state (as the state competed in the defunct Copa Centro-Oeste). The competition was officially announced in September by the competitions director of the Brazilian Football Confederation.
