The 2017 Copa Libertadores de América (officially the 2017 Copa Bridgestone Libertadores for sponsorship reasons)[1] will be the 58th edition of the Copa Libertadores de América, South America's premier club football tournament organized by CONMEBOL.

The winners of the 2017 Copa Libertadores will qualify as the CONMEBOL representative at the 2017 FIFA Club World Cup in Japan (if a team from Mexico wins the Copa Libertadores, the best-placed team from South America will qualify), and also earn the right to play against the winners of the 2017 Copa Sudamericana in the 2018 Recopa Sudamericana.

Teams

The following 38 teams from 11 associations (the 10 CONMEBOL member associations, plus Mexico from CONCACAF which were invited to compete) qualified for the tournament:

  • Title holders
  • Argentina and Brazil: 5 berths each
  • All associations other than Argentina and Brazil: 3 berths each

Among them, 12 teams (the team with the lowest berth from each of the 11 associations, plus the team with the second lowest berth from the association of the title holders) are entered in the first stage, and the remaining 26 teams are entered in the second stage.
