The 2017 Copa CONMEBOL Libertadores (officially the Copa CONMEBOL Libertadores Bridgestone 2017 for sponsorship reasons) is the 58th edition of the Copa Libertadores de América, South America's premier club football tournament organized by CONMEBOL.

The winners of the 2017 Copa Libertadores will qualify as the CONMEBOL representative at the 2017 FIFA Club World Cup in the United Arab Emirates, and also earn the right to play against the winners of the 2017 Copa Sudamericana in the 2018 Recopa Sudamericana.Atlético Nacional were the defending champions, but they were eliminated in the group stage.

Starting from this season, the following format changes will be implemented:
The tournament will be expanded from 38 to 47 teams.

A total of 10 teams eliminated from the Copa Libertadores (two best teams eliminated in the third stage of qualifying and eight third-placed teams in the group stage) will be transferred to the Copa Sudamericana.

The schedule of the tournament will be extended to year-round so it will start in late January or early February and conclude in late November or early December.

Although CONMEBOL proposed to change the format of the final to be played as a single match at a venue to be chosen in advance, they later decided to keep the two-legged home-and-away format

he following 47 teams from the 10 CONMEBOL member associations qualified for the tournament:
- Copa Libertadores champions
- Copa Sudamericana champions
- Brazil: 7 berths
- Argentina: 6 berths
- All other associations: 4 berths each
