The Recopa Sudamericana ( lit. South American Great Cup; ) is an annual football match-up between the reigning champions of the previous year's Copa Libertadores and the Copa Sudamericana, South America's premier club competitions.

Previously, the Recopa Sudamericana was contested between the Copa Libertadores winner and the Supercopa Sudamericana champion until the Supercopa was disbanded. The competition has been disputed with either a presently-used two-legged series or a single match-up at a neutral venue. Together with the aforementioned tournaments, a club has the chance to win the CONMEBOL Treble all in one year or season.

The current champion is Brazilian club Internacional, who won the title for the second time. The most successful team in the competition is Argentine side Boca Juniors, who have won the trophy four times. The cup has been won by 12 different clubs and won consecutively by three clubs; São Paulo, Boca Juniors, and LDU Quito successfully defended the title in 1994, 2006, and 2010, respectively.
