    2019 Copa Libertadores…the 60th edition of South America’s most prestigious fútbol competition.

Shown on the map are all 47 teams that have qualified for the 2019 Libertadores (including the 28 teams which have qualified for the Group Stage of 32).

Qualified teams by country: Brazil has 8 teams (7+ Copa Sudamericana holder). Argentina has 7 teams (6+ Copa Libertadores holder). The eight other countries all have 4 teams each, in the tournament (Uruguay, Colombia, Paraguay, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Venezuela).

Teams are shown in the two flanking sections on either side of the map, organized by country. Shown there in the country-groupings are each team’s all-time total Libertadores appearances (in the tan-colored column), and Libertadores titles (in the pale-blue-colored column).

For the 2019 Libertadores, there are 12 cities with more than one team qualified, and those 12 cities are labelled, and the teams from those cities are shown in small boxes.

At the far left of the map-page is the Libertadores titles list by club (25 clubs have won the Libertadores title). At the far right is the Libertadores titles list by country (of the 59 Libertadores titles, 25 have been won by Argentine teams, and 18 have been won by Brazilian teams).

Finally, at the top is a banner which includes the reigning champions, River Plate, of Argentina. By beating Boca Juniors 3-1 aggregate, River won their 4th Libertadores title (1986, 1996, 2015, 2018).

The Preliminaries (3 stages) start on 22 January…
Within each country, the top-ranked spots get a bye to the Group Stage. The 19 lower-ranked spots must play in the 3 Preliminary Stages. The Preliminary spots are portioned out two-per-country, except for 1 preliminary-spot in the country of the Cup Holder (Argentina, this year). On the map-page, the 19 teams that comprise the Preliminary rounds are shown in italics. From these 19 lowest-ranked qualifiers, only 4 will qualify for the Group Stage of 32. The three Preliminary rounds last a little over a month (ending on the 28th of February).

The Group Stage (of 32) begins on 5-7 March (1st game-week)…
The Group Stage lasts 2 months, and has 6 game-weeks, with the final game-week played on 7-9 May. {2019 Copa Libertadores schedule.}
