2021 Copa Libertadores: location-map for the 47-team tournament, with Club Histories (Libertadores appearances & titles listed)

By Bill Turianski on the 23rd of February 2021;
-2021 Copa Libertadores (
-Summary: results, fixtures, standings ([libertadores]
-Schedule: 2021 Copa Libertadores schedule.

Updated on Monday, the 8th of March: all Brazil spots are finalized.

The 2021 Copa Libertadores Preliminaries start on 23 and 24 February. (The Group Stage will start on 16 April.) As I did last year, I will post an updated map for the Group Stage, around the 12th of April; then I will post a map/chart for the the Final Stages when the Round of 16 starts, around the middle of July. Of course, that is all subject to change (as it was last season…due to the COVID pandemic).

    2020 Copa Libertadores…the 62nd edition of South America’s most prestigious fútbol competition.

Shown on the map are the 47 teams that have qualified for the 2021 Libertadores.

This map includes the preliminary-stage teams: there are 19 preliminary-stage teams…and only four of those 19 teams will advance to the Group Stage. (Note: the 19 preliminary clubs are shown in italics, on the teams-by-country lists.)

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

(Note: Copa Libertadores winner of the 2020 tournament was Palmeiras, of São Paulo, Brazil. Copa Sudamericana winner of the 2020 tournament was Defensa y Justicia, of Florencio Varela in Greater Buenos Aires, Argentina.)

One other note:
This is the first time I have listed, on the map, the city-location of every qualified team. Also, for the first time, I have included an inset map. The inset map is of Greater Buenos Aires. I included this because all 7 qualified teams from Argentina are from either Buenos Aires (5 teams), or from Greater Buenos Aires (2 teams). This is unprecedented.
