South American Youth Championships


Official name: Juventud de América. The 1975 tournament was an "extra" edition but counts for the official records. Since 1977, the top-3 qualify for the World Youth Cup (except for 1987 when Chile qualified as hosts, so only the first two qualified). Until 1975 the tournament featured U-19 teams; the tournaments corresponding to 1989 and 1993 were played the year before because of the scheduling of the World Youth Cup. Since 1997, the top-4 qualify for the World Youth Cup (note that in 2001 Argentina qualified as hosts, so the 5th team qualified in Argentina's place).
