Conmebol forbids Tiger to play Copa Libertadores 2020, even if he is the SuperLeague champion



The South American Football Confederation issued a statement formally setting the requirements for participation in Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamerica in 2020 and among its points prohibits the participation of teams that do not play in the First Division from their respective leagues.

That way, Conmebol will not allow Tigre to play at the Copa Libertadores 2020 although he won the Super League, because from next August he will play in the National B.

Tigre won the first semi-final of the Superleague against Atletico Tucuman from 5 to 0 and it is almost a fact that he will play at the big final on Sunday, June 2 in Cordoba against the winner of Boca and Argentine Union. The SuperLeague rules state that the champion will qualify for the Liberators 2020, but now this Kemelobalia resolution will not allow Tigre to participate in the maximum continental competition in the event of a sanctification.

NOTICE. In point D, Conmebol forbids him to play continental competitions in clubs that are not in the First Division of his leagues.

In addition, the SuperLeague remains very strongly stopped prior to this Conmebol determination, as the regulation found that the Super League Glass Champion would play the Liberators, although it would have dropped out of the category during the regular game.

Now we will have to wait if there are any negotiations between the Super League and Conmebol to make an exception if Tigre is a champion, given that the Argentine football rules are before this resolution with today's date.

In addition, from the other two semi-finalists of the Super League, Boca is already classified directly to Libertadores 2020. Argentinos Juniors no.

Victoria's Club descended to National B along with San Martin de Tucuman, San Martin de San Juan and Belgrano de Cordoba. The arrival of Pipo Gorosito revived the team and won many matches, playing football very well, but it was not enough to avoid falling as it pulled a bad average of previous seasons.

What about Copa Argentina

Copa Argentina also rewards the champion with the Copa Libertadores qualification, but if it is a promotional team, he will not be able to play it. The exemplary case would be Hurricane in 2014, which won the Argentine Cup while playing in National B.
