The Chile national rugby sevens team is a minor national sevens side. In the 2008 USA Sevens they lost to Australia 24-14 in the Shield finals. In preparation for the 2018 Rugby World Cup Sevens they toured Fiji, a month before the World Cup.[1] Chile was invited to the 2021 World Rugby Sevens Series that was held in Canada, in Vancouver and Edmonton.[2]

They have participated at two Olympic repechage tournaments, in 2016 and 2020,[3] but were unsuccessful to qualify for the Olympics both times.
