Fantasy file putting the 16 CONCACAF Champions League second round teams in the Copa Libertadores groups from 2024 onwards. This was rumoured a couple of months back, although it isn't happening IRL.

Updated with the 2024 CCL (now the CONCACAF Champions Cup) format, except the last 16 is no longer played and just draws results from the Libertadores group stage

Yeah sorry I sorted that in the last update a few days ago, if a CONCACAF teams win it now they don't get the automatic spot anymore and have to qualify through North America like usual (guessing they “double qualified” in that scenario and the competition didn't draw because it though it only had 47 teams instead of 48)

The draw does look weird like that until the qualifying rounds are done, because of all the teams that haven't qualified yet, but I can see from your screenshot that it's July and it still hasn't drawn, so yes that was a result of the bug I fixed a few days ago. Appreciate the help, sorry you had to deal with it

If a North American team wins, it seems to free up a spot, I'm guessing the South American qualification is somehow bumping teams down. So if Flamengo wins, and also qualifies via Brazil, an extra Brazilian team gets invited. When a CONCACAF team wins, this isn't happening, and the competition didn't have enough teams so it didn't draw.

 

I think I've fixed it so that in those years, the extra spot, if needed, will be filled by either the Copa Sudamericana winner or the best loser (aggregrate score) in the CONCACAF first round. I'm just running a long-term test now (where I've also given Tigres and América huge budgets and the world's best players so they can more easily win the Copa Libertadores, haha)

OK seems to be working now. Here's Tigres winning and the groups all drawing properly the next year:

OK it seems to be working. If a CONCACAF team wins, the best loser in the CCL qualifying round the next year gets into the Libertadores group stage too. They're just ineligible for the CCL standings (will think about if I want to change stuff to shift them back in there and make it 17 teams those years).

 

I might change it so that extra spot (if a CONCACAF team wins) goes to a wild card like the Ligue Antilles winner instead, or a special invited team from somewhere (Japan? Africa?)
