Todos os participantes da Copa Mercosul foram convidados com base em crit�rios financeiros

1999: SC Corinthians P (invited [*])
      Cruzeiro EC (invited)
      CR Flamengo (invited)
      Gr�mio FBPA (invited)
      SE Palmeiras (invited)

[*] As the worst placed Brazilian team, Corinthians would be "relegated" and replaced by
the 1998 Brazilian champion. However, as 1999 Brazilian champion was Corinthians itself, 
this "relegation" didn't happened.

Por ser o time brasileiro de pior classifica��o no torneio, o Corinthians deveria ser 
"rebaixado" e substitu�do pelo campe�o brasileiro de 1998. Entretanto, como o campe�o 
brasileiro de 1998 foi o pr�prio Corinthians, esse rebaixamento n�o aconteceu.

2000: C Atl�tico Mineiro (runner-up of Campeonato Brasileiro 1999) [*]
      SC Corinthians P (invited)
      Cruzeiro EC (invited)
      CR Flamengo (invited)
      SE Palmeiras (invited)
      S�o Paulo FC (invited)
      CR Vasco da Gama (invited)

[*] Gr�mio apparently was "relegated" due to be the worst placed Brazilian team. Atl�tico
Mineiro was qualified to replaced Gr�mio apparently due to the fact that Corinthians, the 
1999 Brazilian champion, was already among the participants in Copa Mercosul 2000.

O Gr�mio aparentemente foi "rebaixado" por ser o time brasileiro de pior classifica��o
no torneio. O Atl�tico Mineiro se classificou para a vaga do Gr�mio aparentemente em
raz�o de o Corinthians, campe�o brasileiro de 1999, j� estar entre os participantes da
Copa Mercosul 2000.

2001: Cruzeiro EC (3rd place of Campeonato Brasileiro 2000)
      Gr�mio FBPA (4th place of Campeonato Brasileiro 2000)
      SC Corinthians P (invited)
      CR Flamengo (invited)
      SE Palmeiras (invited)
      S�o Paulo FC (invited)
      CR Vasco da Gama (invited)
