Brazil, host country, is one of the seeds and will remain in the A1 position, with the ball of different colour in the box 1. Next to them, also as seeds, will be Uruguay and Argentina, which will be drawn for the Groups B and C (always in position 1 of these groups).
After the draw of the seeds (positions B1 and C1) will be raffled the countries that will form each key and their respective positions within each group. The balls of the balls 2, 3 and 4 will have the participating selections while the balls A, B and C will correspond to the positions in the groups.
Colombia, Chile and Peru are in box 2. Venezuela, Paraguay and Japan will be in box 3 while box 4 will have Ecuador, Bolivia and Qatar.
