The CONMEBOL Pre-Olympic Tournament is an international association football event in the South America region, and is the qualification tournament for the football at the Olympic Games.

In 1960, the teams from North and Central America also entered the tournament.[1] Before 1984, only junior or non-professional players were allowed to participate. In 1987 the competition was open to any player who has not played in World Cup (whether a qualifying match or at the final tournament).[1] Since 1992 the competition is open to players under the age of 23 without any other restriction.[1] The competition was last held in 2004 and between 2007 and 2015, the South American Youth Championship were chosen as the qualifying tournament for the Olympic Games.[2]

The tournament will be re-introduced for the 2020 games.[3]
