The Maracanã last hosted the Copa Libertadores final in 2020, when an all-Brazilian tie saw Palmeiras run out 1-0 winners over Santos.
Last year’s Libertadores final was held at the Estadio Monumental in Guayaquil, Ecuador, where Brazilian team Flamengo beat fellow Brazilians Athletico Paranaense 1-0.
Mastercard, the international credit card giant, recently extended its sponsorship of the Copa Libertadores until 2026.
