Next Tournaments[edit]

The celebration of the 2012 Men's Cup was originaly designed to be played in Santiago de Chile, but in the end it was changed to be played in November in the brazilian city of Recife. One month before the competition, the Catalan Fedaration announced that the team couldn't play in the Cup because the Catalan govermerment decided not support economicly the team, and at the same time, the Argentinian Federation also announced that they won't be playing either ways as they were having internal problems. Seeing that the two bigger countries were not coming to the event, the 2012 Men's Cup was disbanded.

The uruguayan city of Montevideo was selected as host for the 2013 Woman's Cup, but the celebration of that event was not posible for the same problems.
