The Copa Libertadores is South America's most prestigious football club competition and has been organized by CONMEBOL since 1960. Being able to add the Copa Libertadores to a club's honours list is the equivalent of a European Club being added to the table of European Cup winners. Indeed, the only thing considered more prestigious in South America is winning the Intercontinental Cup or World Club Championship, which they hold in much higher esteem than their European counterparts do.

The Copa Libertadores is named in honour of the Libertadores (translating as "the liberators", the leaders of the Latin American wars of independence from Portugal and Spain).

Argentinian clubs have dominated the Copa Libertadores competition for large periods of its history, with four of its clubs (Independiente, Boca Juniors, River Plate, Estudiantes) being amongst the five most successful.
