The Campeonato Sudamericano de Clubes (Portuguese: Campeonato Sul-Americano de Clubes, English: South American Club Championship) was an international men's professional basketball cup competition that took place between South American clubs. It was originally organized by the South American Basketball Confederation, and then later by FIBA Americas. It was played annually between the league champions in each country, plus the winner of the previous edition.


The South American Club Championship, which was founded in 1946, was the first international competition that was played between basketball clubs from South America, and it was the first-tier and most important club competition in South America until 1996, when the South American League supplanted it in importance. With the emergence of the new FIBA Americas League in December 2007, the South American Club Championship became the third-tier international club championship in South America. The competition was finally discontinued in the year 2008.


The competition was hosted in one or more cities. In the first round, the eight clubs were divided in two groups of four teams each. The two best placed teams of each group advanced to the semifinals. In the semifinals, the first placed team of a group played against the other group's runner-up. The final was contested by the semifinal winners.
