In light of this, the Brazilian Football Confederation created a competition that brought every Brazilian state champion to compete for a national tournament, being named Taça Brasil de Futebol.
The 1959 Taça Brasil, the first national club competition in the nation, had 16 participants.
At the top of the Brazilian football league system, it is the country's primary football competition.
Contested by 20 clubs, it operates on a system of promotion and relegation with the Campeonato Brasileiro Série B.
This led the State Football team competition, a tournament that was disputed almost uninterrupted until 1950, lose much of its prestige.
Five more editions later, the competition was scrapped with a celebratory one being disputed in 1987.
The State of São Paulo is the most successful state, amassing 31 titles among five clubs.The International Federation of Football History & Statistics (IFFHS) ranked the league fourth in strength for the 2001–12 period after the Premier League (England), La Liga (Spain), and Serie A (Italy).The Campeonato Brasileiro is the most-watched football league in the Americas and one of the world's most exposed, broadcast in 155 nations.Citing the difficulties in bringing together players from various clubs, clubs from the Rio de Janeiro Federal District and São Paulo opted to pit their best clubs against each other instead.The Torneio Rio-São Paulo, first disputed in 1933 and seeing further editions canceled due to low interest, became the optimal choice of interstate tournaments.
Only in 1959, with the advancements in civil aviation and air transport and the need to appoint a Brazilian representative to the first edition of the Copa Libertadores was a nationwide tournament created, Taça Brasil.
