The 1922 South American Championship Final was the final match to determine the South American Cup champion. It was held on October 22, 1922, in Estádio das Laranjeiras of Rio de Janeiro.

At the end of the tournament, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay were tied on points, and playoff matches were planned for the three teams.

Nevertheless, Uruguay withdrew after informing the organisers their players had to return home; some noted Uruguay were also dissatisfied with a suspicious performance of the Brazilian referee in their game against Paraguay, which they lost.

As a result, only one playoff match was played between Brazil and Paraguay to determine the champion.[1][2]

Brazil won the match against Paraguay 3–0. With this victory, Brazil won its second continental title.[3]
