Group Stage

The group stage for the 2023 Copa Libertadores will feature 32 teams, with 28 of them already set, and four more entering from the qualifying rounds.

The groups and matchups will be chosen via a draw similar to the one for the FIFA World Cup, where the teams are divided into four pots of eight and drawn into four-team groups, with one team from each pot in each group. The top two teams from each group will advance to the knockout stage, while the third-place team will drop to the Copa Sudamericana knockout stage.

The draw for the group stage will take place on March 22, and group stage play will begin on April 4.

Knockout Stage

16 teams will advance from the group stage into the knockout stage via group finish.

The draw for the knockout stage will take place on July 21, with the group winners listed as seeded teams and drawn against group runners-up as unseeded teams.

Knockout stage play will begin on August 1, with the final happening on November 11. All rounds will be two-legged matchups, except for the final which will be contested in one single match. The location for the final is not yet known, although it’s rumored to be taking place in Colombia.
