The 2021 South and Central America Handball Confederation (SCAHC) Women's Championship will be held in the capital of Paraguay, Asunción, from 5 to 9 October.
The second edition of the championship will see the continental champions crowned and the final three of 32 qualification places awarded for the 2021 IHF Women’s World Championship in Spain this December.
The inaugural edition of the championship was held in Brazil in 2018, with the hosts taking the title and, along with runners-up Argentina, a place at the 24-team 2019 IHF Women’s World Championship in Japan.
The tournament will be played in a round robin format with all teams playing against each other once. The top three teams will earn tickets to Spain 2021. While Brazil and Argentina are the overwhelming favourites to clinch two of the three spots, the third spot is up for grabs. Paraguay, Uruguay and Chile look to return to the World Championship after a number of years while Bolivia look to make their first appearance.
