Copa Ecuador History, Format, Organization, Media Coverage
The Copa Ecuador (Ecuadorian Cup) is an annual, knockout football competition for men’s football teams in Ecuador. It was created in 2018 by the Ecuadorian Football Federation and involves teams from Ecuadorian football’s top two flights (Primera A/Serie A and Primeira B/Serie B).
The team that wins the Copa Ecuador gains the right to compete in the Supercopa Ecuador against the winners of the Ecuadorian Serie A as well as a spot in the first stage of the Copa Libertadores.
In terms of media rights, several broadcasters in Ecuador have shown the Copa Ecuador over the years, including Teleamazonas and Ecuavisa, but there is yet to be an official exclusive broadcasting deal for the Copa Ecuador in Ecuador.
