Football is the most popular sport in Chile. The history of club football began in the 19th century with English sailors and their boat trips due to various trade relations between Chile and Britain.
Football was first brought to Chile by the English, who exhibited the sport during visits to commercial ports such as Valparaiso. The local Chileans watched as the sport was practiced. In 1880, Chilean noble families incorporated the sport into their regular rituals, which brought the first games in Chilean football with them. This happened as part of the British school Mackay y Sutherland de Cerro Alegre in Valparaiso.
Chile's oldest club was founded in the port of Valparaiso and was named Valparaiso Football Club. The governing body of the Chilean football Federación de Fútbol de Chile was founded in 1895. Chile was one of the founding members of CONMEBOL, which launched the first South American international championship known today as Copa America.
Other important factors that contributed to the spread of football in Chile were the club tours of other nations such as Argentina and Peru in Chile. In addition, the first South American tournaments have helped make Chile a better force in the world of club football. When the FIFA World Cup was played in Uruguay in 1930, Chile performed well, but failed to reach the second round as they lost to Argentina, finishing second. The next big step in the international arena took place at the 1962 FIFA World Cup in Chile. A series of interesting stories revolved around the victories of the Chilean team, who brought joy to the nation after the terrible earthquake that struck deep. Although Chile did not win, the team reached the 3rd place in the competition.
At present, Chilean football is still a strong force in Latin America. Colo-Colo was the only Chilean club to win a Copa Libertadores championship: the 1991 Copa Libertadores. Also won the Copa Interamericana in 1991 and the Recopa Sudamericana in 1992. Other clubs such as Cobreloa, Unión Española and Universidad Católica have finished the finals with the 2nd place. And the Universidad de Chile was the only Chilean club to win a Copa Sudamericana championship.
Chile even has a higher status in women's football. Colo-Colo was the first non-Brazilian champion in the Copa Libertadores Femenina after doing so in the 2012 edition, and has since remained a strong force of women's football in South America.
The Chilean national football team represents Chile in all important football competitions. The team is controlled by the Federación de Fútbol de Chile, founded in 1895. She won the Copa América in 2015 and 2016. She also appeared in 9 FIFA World Cup ™ tournaments and hosted the 1962 FIFA World Cup ™, finishing in 3rd place. Chile reached the third highest rank ever in FIFA between April and May 2016, finishing third.
A women's team, a U20 team and a U17 team also compete against each other. The Chilean women's team qualified for their first FIFA Women's World Cup 2019.
