This is a record of the results of the Chilean national football team at the FIFA World Cup. The FIFA World Cup, sometimes called the Football World Cup or the Soccer World Cup, but usually referred to simply as the World Cup, is an international association football competition contested by the men's national teams of the members of Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), the sport's global governing body. The championship has been awarded every four years since the first tournament in 1930, except in 1942 and 1946, due to World War II.

The tournament consists of two parts, the qualification phase and the final phase (officially called the World Cup Finals). The qualification phase, which currently take place over the three years preceding the Finals, is used to determine which teams qualify for the Finals. The current format of the Finals involves 32 teams competing for the title, at venues within the host nation (or nations) over a period of about a month. The World Cup Finals is the most widely-viewed sporting event in the world, with an estimated 715.1 million people watching the 2006 tournament final.[1]

The Federación de Fútbol de Chile is the second oldest South American federation, with 112 years of existence. Its foundation dates back to June 19, 1895 at the port city of Valparaiso. Its first President was David Scott.[2] Chile is one of four founding member nations of CONMEBOL together with Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay. They established the South American footballing organization on July 9, 1916.[3] The four original associations enacted and participated in the first ever South American Championship which would later be named the Copa America.
