CONMEBOL Beach Soccer Championship

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The CONMEBOL Beach Soccer Championship is the main championship for beach soccer in South America. In both 2005 and 2007, CONCACAF and CONMEBOL held joint championships.[1] In 2007, the successful teams of the competition qualified to play in the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup, whereas the 2005 tournament was unattached from the world cup. This was not the way teams qualified for the 2005 world cup.

In 2006, when FIFA introduced the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup qualifiers, the championship became the way to qualify for the World Cup, so CONCACAF and CONMEBOL held two separate championships. From 2008 onwards, due to the number of teams from each confederation trying to qualify, CONCACAF and CONMEBOL have decided to always have separate championships.

Now that the World Cup takes place every two years, so will the qualifiers, starting with the qualifiers for the 2011 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup. The top three teams from the tournament qualify to play in the next FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup.
