CONMEBOL is responsible for the organization and governance of South American football's major international tournaments.

Argentina and Uruguay have also won two Olympic gold medals each. With 10 member football associations, it is the smallest confederation in FIFA.

The main competition for men's national teams is the Copa América, started in 1916. CONMEBOL also runs national competitions at Under-20, Under-17 and Under-15 levels. For women's national teams, CONMEBOL operates the Campeonato Sudamericano Femenino for senior national sides as well as Campeonato Sudamericano Femenino Sub-20 and Campeonato Sudamericano Femenino Sub-17 Championships.

Club

CONMEBOL also runs the two main club competitions in South America: the Copa Libertadores was first held in 1960, and was known as the Copa de Campeones until 1966; and the Copa Sudamericana was launched by CONMEBOL in 2002 as an indirect successor to the Supercopa Sudamericana (begun in 1988). A third competition, the Copa CONMEBOL, started in 1992 and was abolished in 1999. In women's football CONMEBOL also conducts the Copa Libertadores de Fútbol Femenino for club teams. The competition was first held in 2009.

The Recopa Sudamericana pits the past year's winners of the Copa Libertadores against the winners of the Copa Sudamericana (previously the winners of the Supercopa Sudamericana), and came into being in 1989.

The Intercontinental Cup was jointly organised with UEFA between the Copa Libertadores and the UEFA Champions League winners.
