Conmebol’s Copa Sul-Americana finals set for Paraguay and Bolivia in 2024 and 2025

April 11 – Asuncion and Santa Cruz will host the next two editions of the final of the Copa Sul-Americana, South America’s second-tier club competition, Conmebol announced on Wednesday. 

“Host city confirmed! The city of Asunción, located in the heart of South America, will once again host the Conmebol Sul-Americana Final. 2024 will have its exciting outcome in Paraguay,” wrote Conmebol president Alejandro Domínguez on social media.

It will be the second time Paraguay’s capital city has hosted the showpiece final after Conmebol scrapped the two-legged format. Argentinian city Cordoba has also staged the final twice since 2019. The venue will not be decided until Conmebol knows who the finalists will be and the requirements of those teams and their fan bases.

Last year’s Copa Sul-Americana between Fortaleza of Brazil and LDU of Ecuador was shifted from Uruguay’s Centenario Stadium with a capacity of 60,000 to a smaller ground in Maldonado.

The venue for this year’s final of the Copa Libertadores, the equivalent of the Champions League, has also not yet been settled on. The final will be played in Buenos Aires and it is widely believed that River Plate’s Monumental Stadium, the largest stadium in South America, is the frontrunner.

Santa Cruz de la Sierra in Bolivia will organise the 2025 final of the Copa Sul-Americana.
