The Copa do Brasil de Futebol Feminino (English: Brazilian Women's Football Cup) is a Brazilian women's football (soccer) competition organized by the Brazilian Football Confederation with the help of the Brazilian Ministry of Sports. It is designed as an equivalent to the men's Copa do Brasil. The first edition is scheduled to start in the end of October, 2007.[1][2]CBF determined that to be eligible to play in the competition it is necessary to be a minimum of 14 years old and a maximum of 34 years old, and half of the players of each club have to be aged between 14 and 18 years old.[3]

The competition was announced after FIFA president Sepp Blatter requested the creation of a professional women's football league in Brazil.[4]

Format

In 2007, the competition was contested by 32 teams, and was played from October 30, 2007, to December 9 of the same year. Copa do Brasil de Futebol Feminino's first stage is similar to the men's competition, thus being a knockout competition, played over two legs between clubs of the same region, and disputed in three rounds, but in the second stage the eight qualified clubs are divided in two groups of four teams each, playing against each other once, and held in a host city. The two best placed teams of each group qualify to the semifinals. The semifinal winners play the final while the losers play the third-place playoff.[5]

Referees

The Brazilian Football Confederation created a separated women's referee staff for the competition, not connected to the men's referee staff.[6]
