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.[1][2] 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.[3] 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.[4]
