The eleventh edition of the South American Championship was held in Lima, Peru from October 30 to November 27, 1927. The participating countries were Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, and Uruguay. Brazil, Chile and Paraguay withdrew from the tournament. This was the first South American Championship in which Peru participated. The tournament was also used as a qualifier for the 1928 Summer Olympics and both Argentina and Uruguay were subsequently invited to enter that competition.[1]

The Argentina team departed from Retiro railway station to Chilean city Valparaíso, where they joined Uruguayan players to board a ship to the port of Callao, Lima. They arrived in Peru after eight days of trip.[2]
