Reports from South America last week revealed that CONMEBOL was interested in staging the Copa Libertadores final in Miami in the future. But I’m told that U.S. Soccer has communicated to CONMEBOL that it is not supportive of allowing official games of other confederations to take place in the United States.

CONMEBOL confirmed earlier this month that the 2017 competition will continue to feature a two-legged final, with each finalist hosting a match.

Colombia's Atletico Nacional is the reigning champion of South America's preeminent club competition after topping Ecuador's Independiente Del Valle 2-1 on aggregate.
