Honours were shared during the day with Uruguay winning the male, female and under 18s matches but Argentina winning the under 15s and under 12s matches.

Julio Calegari, International Development Director for the FITB was delighted to hear of the matches:

"Tchoukball has been slowly developing in South America over the last 5 years, but its popularity is increasing now at a much better rate.  Playing in my native Brazil ten years ago, participation was far less but now tchoukball has really grown.  Our federations in Argentina and Uruguay have worked hard to develop tchoukball, and today is a great celebration of that work."

The final results were as follows:

Senior men Argentina 53-57 Uruguay
Senior women Argentina 29-50 Uruguay
Under 18 Argentina 55-58 Uruguay
Under 15 Argentina 46-39 Uruguay
Under 12 Argentina 34-31 Uruguay
