History

The South American Club Championship, which was founded in 1946, was the first international competition that was played between basketball clubs from South America, and it was the first-tier and most important club competition in South America until 1996, when the new South American League supplanted it in importance. With the emergence of the new FIBA Americas League in December of 2007, the South American League became the second-tier international club championship in South America, beginning with the 2008 edition of the competition.
