(*)Both Peru and Chile played the tournament with their U23 national teams, Perú played under the name of LNSV, their national volleyball league and Chile played under the name ADO (Asociación de Deportistas Olímpicos, Spanish for Olympic Athletes Association). Both due to a controversial change in the date of the tournament.
Due to the FIVB's decision to host the 2014 Club World Championship in May 2014 instead of October as the past editions, the CSV changed the date of the South American Club Championship to February, a month where the South American volleyball leagues have not yet declared a champion to participate in the tournament. Most of the countries decided to prepare a qualifier, such as the Brazilian Women's Volleyball Superliga which qualified SESI-SP to the tournament while other countries like Perú decided to send a national team under the name of their national volleyball league.
As the official Spanish name for the tournament is "South American Champion Clubs Championship, most countries[who?] raised severe opinions about the top three countries from last years edition not participating with a champion club.
