The Argentina squad that won its 6th South American title

The sixteenth edition of the South American Championship was held in Santiago, Chile from February 2 to March 4.

With the purpose of celebrating the fourth centenary of Santiago's foundation by Pedro de Valdivia, Chile requested to host this tournament's edition. Because of that, this edition is considered extra (no trophy was handed to the winners).

The participating countries were Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, and Uruguay.

Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia and Paraguay withdrew from the tournament.
