2018 Copa América de Beach Soccer

The Copa América of Beach Soccer (named natively in Spanish as the Copa América de Fútbol Playa) is a biennial international beach soccer tournament contested between the senior men's national teams of the 10 members of CONMEBOL.[1] It is beach soccer's version of the better known Copa América in its parent sport, association football.

Along with the longer running World Cup qualification tournament, it is one of the main two beach soccer championships disputed exclusively by South American national teams.

The tournament is organised by the governing body for football in South America, CONMEBOL,[2] who established the event in 2016[3] following their declaration of commitment a year prior, to develop beach soccer on the continent.[4] Exhibition-style events also held under the Copa América title took place in 1994–99, 2003 and 2012–14,[5] but this fully competitive incarnation of the Copa América is the first to be officially sanctioned and organised by CONMEBOL, who also organise the other official Copa América events in association football and futsal.

Brazil are the current champions.
