   CHILE  
     
     
 

The Chile national football team (Spanish: Selección de Fútbol de Chile) represents Chile in international football and is controlled by the Chilean Football Federation (Spanish: Federación de Fútbol de Chile, FFC), the governing body for football in Chile.


The FFC was founded in 1895, became a member of FIFA in 1913, and a member of CONMEBOL in 1916. Chile is one of the four founding member nations of CONMEBOL. Together with Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay, the four competed in the first South American Championship in 1916, later to be renamed the Copa America. Interestingly, Chile is the only one out of the founding members never to have won the tournament. Chile could only reach the second place four times.


The country's history of football began with English sailors and their boat trips due to various commercial links between Chile and Great Britain in the 19th century.  The first professional league was founded in 1933. The first edition of professional competition was contested by the eight founding teams (Unión Española, Badminton, Colo-Colo, Audax Italiano, Green Cross, Morning Star, Magallanes and Santiago National),and was won by Magallanes after defeating Colo-Colo in a decisive match. Since then, Chile's top clubs have been Colo-Colo with 29 championships,  Universidad de Chile with 16, and Universidad Católica with 10.


Currently, Chile is one of the successful football team in South America. The new talented golden generation will surely give much to talk about in the coming years.
