The South American Masters Tournament was added to the already congested South American Soccer Schedule in 1992. Played between the four winners of the South American Super Cup, itself a 16-team tournament for winners of the Copa Libertadores it was played just this once in Velez Sarsfield Stadium, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Boca Juniors, made famous as the team which brought Diego Maradona to the World, won the Tournament, triumphing 2-1 in the Final versus Brazil’s Cruzeiro from Belo Horizonte having already defeated Paraguay’s Olimpia 1-0 in the Semi-Finals. Olimpia from Asuncion, Paraguay defeated Racing Club, the second Buenos Aires team in the tournament in the 3rd Place Playoff.

Velez Sarsfield are named after Dalmacio Velez Sarsfield, whose Grandfather George Sarsfield left Ireland in the early 1700s. Dalmacio is a hugely important figure in Argentina, having written the country’s civil code in 1856. The Code remained in use until 2015. Velez Sarsfield are a multi-sport club based in the Capital Buenos Aires, and are most famous for their successful Soccer team.
