The South American Zone of 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification saw nine teams competing for 4 or 5 berths in the finals. Brazil automatically qualified for the World Cup as the host nation so were not involved in CONMEBOL qualifying. Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador and Uruguay advanced to the World Cup.

Format[edit]

The format for CONMEBOL's 2014 World Cup qualifying tournament was identical to the previous four editions. All CONMEBOL national teams played against each other twice on a home-and-away basis in a single group for 4 or 5 allotted berths. The top four teams automatically qualified for the finals. The fifth-placed team competed in the intercontinental play-offs against the fifth-placed team from the AFC's World Cup qualifying tournament. The order of matches was identical to that of the 2002, 2006 and 2010 tournaments. As Brazil qualified automatically as hosts, each team had a bye on the date they would normally have been scheduled to play Brazil.

Notes
  1. ^ Colombia v Ecuador was originally to be kicked off at 15:30 local time, but was delayed by an hour and a half due to rain.[2]
  2. ^ Peru v Bolivia was played without spectators due to sanctions imposed by FIFA as a result of crowd disturbance incidents.[3] The Peruvian Football Federation decided to withdraw their appeal and accepted the punishment.[4]
