The sixth edition of the South American Championship was scheduled to be held in Chile, but Brazil asked to host it as part of its 100th anniversary independence celebrations. Thus it was held in Rio de Janeiro between September 17 and October 22, 1922.
All CONMEBOL members (as of 1922) attended: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay.
1922 South American Championship Wikipedia
Each team played one match against each of the other teams. Two (2) points were awarded for a win, one (1) point for a draw and zero (0) points for a defeat.
All Paraguayan players left the field in protest to the penalty kick awarded by the referee.
Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay were tied, and playoff matches were planned for the three teams. Uruguay withdrew, so only one playoff match was played between Brazil and Paraguay to determine the champion.
