VenuesEdit

The matches were played at the Polideportivo del Club Sol de América in Asunción.[2]

Group stageEdit

The draw of the tournament was held on 23 October 2015 during the CONMEBOL Futsal Committee meeting at the CONMEBOL headquarters in Luque, Paraguay.[4] The ten teams were drawn into two groups of five teams. Each group contained one team from each of the five "pairing pots": Argentina–Paraguay, Brazil–Colombia, Chile–Venezuela, Peru–Uruguay, Bolivia–Ecuador. The schedule of the tournament was announced on 8 January 2016.[5]

The top two teams of each group advanced to the semi-finals, while the remaining teams proceeded to the classification play-offs for fifth to tenth place. The teams were ranked according to points (3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, 0 points for a loss). If tied on points, tiebreakers were applied in the following order:[6]

  1. Head-to-head result in games between tied teams;
  2. Goal difference in all games;
  3. Goals scored in all games;
  4. Drawing of lots.

All times local, PYST (UTC−3).[7]
