The 31st edition of the CONMEBOL Sudamericana takes place from 8 March to 1 October 2022. Its final match will be played at the Mario Alberto Kempes Stadium in Córdoba, Argentina.

History of the Copa Sudamericana

The first draw of the CONMEBOL Sudamericana took place in 2002.

In 2003, thanks to sponsorship by Nissan Motors, the name of the Cup was changed to Copa Nissan Sudamericana. That year, the tournament was joined by Brazilian clubs that could not participate in the first tournament due to overlapping match dates.

In 2005, clubs from CONCACAF America and Mexico were invited to participate in the Cup.

The winner of the 2006 tournament was C.F. Pachuca from Mexico.

In 2017, there was a change in the timing of the tournament, with the preliminary rounds taking place in the first half of the year. In the same year, the name was changed to the modern-day CONMEBOL Sudamericana.
