FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup record

Paraguay made their Beach Soccer World Cup debut at the seventh edition in Tahiti in 2013, where they were eliminated in the group phase. They also fell at the first hurdle two years later in Portugal, but not before causing considerable problems for a strong Russia side and eventual runners-up Tahiti. Los Pynandi finally made it to the quarter-finals at Bahamas 2017, where they narrowly lost out to eventual runners-up Tahiti.
