The South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) is the administrative and controlling body for South American association football. It currently organizes four club competitions: the Copa Libertadores, the Copa Sudamericana, the Recopa Sudamericana, 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 discontinued competitions, the most notable of which were the Supercopa Libertadores (from 1989 to 1997), the Copa CONMEBOL (from 1992 to 1999), the Copa Mercosur and the Copa Merconorte (from 1998 to 2001). It also held minor continental Copas, some of them with only one edition: the Copa de Oro, Copa Master de Supercopa and Copa Master de CONMEBOL in the 1990s, and the Copa Ganadores de Copa in 1970.

At intercontinental level, together with the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), CONMEBOL organized the Intercontinental Cup, which was held from 1960 to 2004, and two editions of the Intercontinental Champions' Supercup, in the 1960s. With the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF), the South American confederation jointly held the Copa Interamericana intermittently, from 1969 to 1998. Excluded from this list is the FIFA Club World Cup, a FIFA club competition.[2]

Argentina's Boca Juniors is the most successful club in CONMEBOL competitions, winning 18 trophies. Fellow Argentine club Independiente, which holds the record for the most Copa Libertadores victories (with seven), is the second most successful, having won 16 titles, while Brazil's São Paulo follows with 11 trophies. No club has ever won all the competitions, but Boca Juniors, São Paulo and River Plate won seven different CONMEBOL tournaments, while Independiente trails with six. River Plate is the first and only team to simultaneously hold CONMEBOL's four current international competitions, after winning the 2014 Copa Sudamericana, 2015 Recopa Sudamericana, the 2015 Copa Libertadores,[3] and the 2015 Suruga Bank Championship.[4][5]

Argentine clubs are the most successful with 66 titles, ahead of clubs from Brazil, with 52, and Uruguay, which have won 18. Out of CONMEBOL's member associations, only clubs from Venezuela have never won a continental competition, while a club from Mexico (whose federation is a member of CONCACAF), has won a South American competition once.

Brazilian club Atlético Mineiro and Colombia's Atlético Nacional are the best performing clubs in the Copa CONMEBOL and the Copa Merconorte, respectively, also with two titles. The other CONMEBOL competitions were won once by each of its winners.
