Recopa Sudamericana de Clubes 1971

First Stage

Brazil and Colombia decided not to enter.

Group 1 (in Concepción, Chile, or Montevideo, Uruguay)

This group was to be played with the following teams (as reported on
January 8, 1971):

Huracán Buceo (Montevideo, Uruguay)
Deportes Concepción (Concepción, Chile)
one undefined team from Argentina (see Copa Argentina - 1970)
one undefined team from Bolivia

On February 25, 1971, Deportes Concepción withdrew and Huracán Buceo 
had not yet confirmed its participation, so, CSF decided the following:

 The tournament would be a friendly one and no cup would be awarded;
 name the referees because the tournament (in group 2) was about to start. 

Group 2 (in Quito, Ecuador, estadio Olimpico Atahualpa)

NB: played in parallel with group 5 matches of the Copa Libertadores 1971.

América (Quito, Ecuador)
