Abstract: We study the C*-algebras associated to Fell bundles over groupoids and give a notion of equivalence for Fell bundles which guarantees that the associated C*-algebras are strongly Morita equivalent. As a corollary we show that any saturated Fell bundle is equivalent to a semi-direct product arising from the action of the groupoid on a C*-bundle.
