This competition was supposed to replace the Copa Mercosur and Copa Merconorte. It was originally planned for 2002 but was then postponed to 2003. As replacement, a Copa Sudamericana was played in 2002.
It was later cancelled entirely due to financial differences between CSF and Football Confederation and a Copa Sudamericana was held in 2003 as well (and will become an annual tournament).
Intended participants included: Brazil (6): Fluminense, São Paulo, São Caetano, Juventude, Atlético-MG, Cruzeiro Qualifying Tournament Central America: Central America (2): LD Alajuelense, Árabe Unido
