2014 Copa Libertadores Femenina

The Copa Libertadores Femenina (sometimes called Copa Libertadores Femenino) is an annual international CONMEBOL). The competition started in the 2009 season in response to the increased interest in women's football. It is the only CONMEBOL club competition for women.

The tournament is the women's version of the Copa Libertadores which is organised since 1960.

History

The old logo using the longer name.

The competition was officially announced in March 2009,[1] and it was approved by CONMEBOL's Executive Committee on July 3 of that year.[2] CONMEBOL decided that the competition's first edition will be played in FPF, CBF and Santos Futebol Clube.[2]

Colombian team Formas Íntimas is the only team to appear in all editions up to 2014.

Format

In 2009 and 2010 the tournament was played by ten teams, one from each CONMEBOL country, divided in two groups of five clubs each.[4] The two best-placed teams of each group qualify to play the semifinal and the winners then play the final, while the losers play the third-place game.[4]

From 2011 onwards twelve teams played the tournament and were divided into three groups of four. The group winners and best runner-up advanced to the semi-finals.

The 2015 edition will be the first to be held outside Brazil. Medellin in Colombia have made an official bid, with cities in Paraguay, Chile and again Brazil interested as well.[5] Medellin was then announced host just before the 2014 edition.[6]
