The Taça Belo Horizonte de Juniores (or Belo Horizonte Youth Cup, in English), also known as Taça Belo Horizonte de Futebol Júnior is a cup competition usually played by 36 Brazilian under-20 football teams, most of them from Minas Gerais state.

The 2006 competition's trophy was named after Telê Santana. [1]



In the first stage the 36 teams are divided in 6 groups. The top 2 of each group, plus the top four 3rd placed teams, qualify to the knockout stage. From the round of 16 to the final there are only one-leg matches, as all matches are played in Minas Gerais state.

An edition of this cup lasts about 40 days.
