2023 South American U-17 Championship

The South American U-17 Championship (Spanish: Campeonato Sudamericano Sub-17; Portuguese: Campeonato Sul-Americano Sub-17) is a football competition held every two years for South American under-17 teams. The tournament was born in 1985 out of a need for a classification tournament for the newly created FIFA U-16 World Cup (now the FIFA U-17 World Cup). For the first three editions (1985, 1986, and 1988), the competition was limited to under-16 teams. Afterwards, the age limit was raised one year.[1] The tournament is held every two years.[2] Since the first edition, Brazil has been the dominant force of the tournament, winning a record twelve times.
