The 2020 Copa CONMEBOL Libertadores is the 61st edition of the CONMEBOL Libertadores (also referred to as the Copa Libertadores), South America's premier club football tournament organized by CONMEBOL.[1]

On 17 October 2019, CONMEBOL announced that the final will be played at the Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on 21 November 2020.[2] The winners of the 2020 Copa Libertadores will qualify for the 2020 FIFA Club World Cup in Qatar, and earn the right to play against the winners of the 2020 Copa Sudamericana in the 2021 Recopa Sudamericana. They will also automatically qualify for the 2021 Copa Libertadores group stage. Flamengo were the defending champions, but were eliminated by Racing in the round of 16.

In March 2018, the Liga MX President, Enrique Bonilla, said that Liga MX and Major League Soccer (MLS) were open to start talks to have Mexican teams return and MLS teams from Canada and the United States to join if they could agree on terms with the CONMEBOL officials.[3] Teams from Mexico have withdrawn from the Copa Libertadores since 2017, but may return in the future if the issue of schedule conflicts can be solved.[4]

On 21 May 2019, CONMEBOL announced that clubs must pass certain eligibility requirements in order to compete in the 2020 Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana.[5] One of the original requirements was that teams must be in the top division of their member association, but this was removed after many associations stated that they had not adapted the regulations of their qualifying competitions for the 2020 Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana.[6]

The tournament was suspended after group stage matchday 2 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and resumed on 15 September 2020, with the final rescheduled to be played on 30 January 2021.[7][8]
