Second phaseEdit

Originally, the 2nd phase would be disputed in knockout style. The teams would be matched according to their record in the first phase, so the matches would be:

Team 1 Agg. Team 2 1st leg 2nd leg
Santa Cruz União São João
Criciúma - Fortaleza
Ceará Coritiba
Remo - Grêmio
América-MG Desportiva Ferroviária
Paraná - Vitória

However, to reduce the costs, the 2nd phase was changed and the teams were assigned in groups according to their geographical position. To compensate, clubs with advantage in original rules (Santa Cruz, Criciúma, Ceará, Remo, América and Paraná) earned an extra point.

Third phaseEdit

Once more, the rules were changed. For unknown reasons, Fortaleza went to court claiming to have the right to have a berth. Instead of 6 teams qualifying to the 3rd phase, 2 more berths were created. CBF invited Fortaleza and Grêmio, that had the best record among the eliminated. Grêmio forfeited their berth to the 3rd phase alleging financial reasons, União São João won the berth.
