Liga Sudamericana official match previews, news & schedules on livebasketball.com
The Liga Sudamericana is second only to the FIBA Americas League in the grand hierarchy of South America's professional club basketball competitions. Organized by the South American Basketball Confederation, the league usually boasts domestic champions as well as select runner-ups from the continent's leading countries.
Unsurprisingly, clubs from regional powerhouses Argentina and Brazil have dominated the tournament since its inaugural hosting in 1996. In fact, clubs from both nations contested each and every final of the competition until 2012, with the likes of Regatas Corrientes, Atenas, Vasco da Gama and Corinthians all winning on multiple occasions.
The South American Basketball Confederation is an affiliate of FIBA Americas, which contains the 44 FIBA Federations located in the Americas and is headquartered in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
