The qualifiers were not coordinated by CONMEBOL at the time. The event was instead organised by Beach Soccer Worldwide (BSWW), under the title of FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup Qualifier. CONMEBOL first recognised the tournament in 2013, under the title South American Beach Soccer Championship, also acknowledging the 2006–11 events as historic editions of the championship. CONMEBOL eventually began organising the qualifiers in 2017, under a new title.
Hosts Brazil won the championship, with Uruguay finishing second. Argentina won the third place play-off to claim third. These three nations moved on to play in the 2006 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from November 2–12.
