Year of increased prizes

Despite financing local tournaments with 1 million dollars (885.754 euros) next year to every member association on the South American continent, the confederation has announced another increase: this time the focus was on the international ones.
On 20 December (at the draw for the following two events) it was disclosed that in 2022 the winner of Copa Libertadores will be awarded with 16 million dollars (14.2 million euros). Prize for the second tournament in significance also is going to be increased: the Copa Sudamericana champion will be rich for 5 million dollars (4.4 million euros). Just in comparison: winners of the same competitions this year got 1 million dollars (885.754 euros) less.
That team who will lift the trophy of Recopa Sudamericana (encounter between Sudamericana and Libertadores winners of 2021 or in this case Athletico Paranaense - Palmeiras) will receive additional 1.6 million dollars (1.4 million euros), while half of this amount goes to the losers (711.909 euros).
