The Chile is the second oldest South American federation, with 114 years of existence. Its foundation dates back to 19 June 1895 in the port city of Valparaiso. Its first President was David Scott.

Chile is one of the four founding member nations of CONMEBOL which include Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay. The members established the South American footballing organization on 9 July 1916. The four associations enacted and participated in the first held South American Championship which would later be re-named the Copa America.

Chile is one of the original thirteen national teams that competed in the inaugural 1930 World Cup. They started off well beating Mexico and France without conceding a goal. A 3-1 loss to Argentina in their final game left them in second place within the group, eliminating them from the tournament. In the 1950 World Cup, Chile was eliminated in the first round but defeated the United States 5-2.

Their best World Cup result was a third place finish in 1962, when Chile was the host nation. Chile lost 4-2 to eventual champions Brazil in a semifinals match. Chile went on to defeat Yugoslavia 1-0 for third place.

Many historical incidences have occurred while Chile has been involved in World Cup competition. The first player to miss a World Cup penalty kick was Guillermo Subiabre in a 1930 FIFA World Cup match against France. Carlos Caszely of Chile became the first player to be officially sent off with a red card in a 1974 World Cup game, during their match against West Germany. Red cards were formally introduced in World Cup play in 1970, but no players were sent off in that tournament.

In Olympic tournament play, Chile's best result was the Bronze medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, with striker Ivan Zamorano the competition's top scorer.

Chile has also attained bronze medals in both the U-17 World Cup held in Japan and the U-20 World Cup in Canada. The 1987 FIFA World Youth Championship hosted in Chile had the national team finishing in fourth place.

La Roja's most infamous moment known as The Roberto Rojas Scandal (also known in Chile as the "Maracanazo") occurred on 3 September 1989. During a 1990 FIFA World Cup qualifying match at Rio de Janeiro's Maracan stadium, Brazil led Chile 1-0. A defeat for Chile would eliminate them from the tournament. At around the 67-minute mark, Chilean goalkeeper Roberto "Cndor" Rojas fell to the pitch with an apparent injury to his forehead. A firework, thrown from the stands by a Brazilian fan named Rosemary de Mello, was smouldering about a yard away. After carrying Rojas off the pitch, the Chilean players and coaches refused to return claiming conditions were not safe. The match went unfinished.

After studying video footage of the match showing that the firework had not made contact with Rojas, FIFA awarded Brazil a 2-0 win (eliminating Chile from the 1990 World Cup). The team was banned from the qualifiers of the 1994 Football World Cup, and Rojas was banned for life (although an amnesty was granted in 2001).

On 11 July 2007, the Chilean Football Federation banned six of the national team players, because of "internal indiscipline" during the Copa America tournament, for 20 international matches each and none of the players will ever be allowed to captain the national team. The players banned were captain Jorge Valdivia, defenders lvaro Ormeo, Rodrigo Tello, Jorge Vargas and Pablo Contreras and striker Reinaldo Navia. Nelson Acosta's resignation as manager came after Chile were knocked out of the 2007 Copa America. Chile had qualified to the quarter-finals after a win against Ecuador 3-2, and a draw against Mexico 0-0. But, two losses against Brazil sealed Acosta's fate. Former Argentina manager Marcelo Bielsa was given the task of becoming the current Chile national team manager in preparation for the 2010 World Cup qualifiers. In 16 October 2008, Chile beat Argentina 1-0 for the first time in a qualifying competition, making history. Marcelo Bielsa was acclaimed for this defeat from both Chilean and Argentinian people, and this was one of the reasons that ended in the resigning of Alfio Basile from the Argentinian bench.

The Chilean national team plays their qualifying matches at the Estadio Nacional de Chile located in Santiago, Chile and can be found at the commune of uoa. The construction of the stadium began in February 1937, and opened on 3 December 1938. The official registered capacity is of 62,000 spectators, but has surpassed the 75,000 mark on many occasions when the match is of high demand. An example would be the 1962 FIFA World Cup Semi-final match Chile vs. Brazil, where over 76,000 spectators viewed the game. The maximum attendance ever was 85.262 on December 26, 1962 for a game between Universidad Catolica and Universidad de Chile

It has hosted four Copa America finals, The final of the 1962 FIFA World Cup and the final to the 1987 FIFA World Youth Championship.

Peru and Chile have a rivalry that dates back from the War of the Pacific. Previously, the two nations had been on friendly terms sharing mutual alliances during the South American wars of independence and in the Chincha Islands War. Territorial, maritime, and cultural disputes have fueled tensions since the ending of the War of the Pacific. These historical feuds and lingering bitterness have led to a large football rivalry between both nations.

The rivalry originating since the ending of the war evolved into sports competition, especially football since that is the favorite sport of both nations. The Chile vs. Peru games generally tend to be very competitive and at times rough, often with players sent off. The two teams display highly contested battles that make for entertaining matches within the CONMEBOL region.

Their journey of success continued with the passage of time, till they have qualified for the soccer world's mega Event the World cup. Their successes added alot into their popularity among the people across the glob.Now you can get Chile World cup tickets and World Cup tickets onilne.
