DrawEdit

The draw of the tournament was held on 30 March 2017, 14:30 ART (UTC−3), at the Sports Secretariat of the city of San Juan.[3] The ten teams were drawn into two groups of five teams. The hosts and defending champions Argentina and the defending runners-up Paraguay were seeded into Groups A and B respectively, while the remaining teams were placed into four "pairing pots" according to their results in the 2015 Copa América de Futsal: Brazil–Colombia, Chile–Uruguay, Venezuela–Peru, Ecuador–Bolivia.[4]

SquadsEdit

Each team had to submit a squad of 14 players, including a minimum of two goalkeepers (Regulations Article 4.1).[5]

Match officialsEdit

A total of 16 referees were appointed for the tournament.[6]

Group stageEdit

The top two teams of each group advance to the semi-finals, while the teams in third, fourth and fifth advance to the fifth place, seventh place, and ninth place play-offs respectively. The teams are ranked according to points (3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, 0 points for a loss). If tied on points, tiebreakers are applied in the following order (Regulations Article 6.2):[5]

  1. Results in head-to-head matches between tied teams (points, goal difference, goals scored);
  2. Goal difference in all matches;
  3. Goals scored in all matches;
  4. Drawing of lots.

All times are local, ART (UTC−3).
