Torneo Nacional

Overview Honours Roll Related trophies Sources Current Season


The first Chilean tournament was the Campeonato Central, organized by ARUSA (Santiago union).
During the years the best teams from the other Chilean unions were invited and it become a sort of national championship.
Since 1999 the tournament was doubled with an Aprtura tournament played in the first months of each year.

In 2010 teams from other unions retired and formed the Liga de Rugby de Chile with its own tournament. After the birth of Torneo Nacional in 2012 the Liga became an apertura tournament and it was abandoned in 2016 when its teams were included in Campeonato Central Apertura.

In 2010 FeRuChi (Chilean union, now Chile Rugby) organized its first Nacional de Clubes played by the best teams from every provincial union. It was abandoned since 2013.

In 2012 FeRuChi organized a new Torneo Nacional that took the place of Campeonato Central, reintegrating the Liga de Rugby teams.
