Chile Rugby’s work in the High Performance area was approved by World Rugby, which will provide funding for a guaranteed minimum of two years.
Rugby in the region received another sign that it is on the right track with the approval of special funds for High Performance plans in Chile Rugby. For this reason, Chilean rugby will receive £ 100,000 in 2021 and another £ 100,000 in 2022 for its High Performance, having to attend to certain critical success factors identified by the mother entity.
These funds were approved after a thorough and successful presentation by the Federation, which in recent years has gained the credibility of international rugby. To do this, he carried out the presentation to World Rugby of his Performance Case showing his programs to continue developing High Performance and increase the competitiveness of his senior national team.
Clearly, Los Cóndores’ goal is to qualify for Rugby World Cup 2023 in France; Between 2019 and 2020 it showed progress at the level of its selected team and its structures that merited this presentation. Among the points World Rugby highlighted in approving the funds are stable governance, strong leadership and a commitment to achieving the High Performance objectives, as well as a good relationship with the public and private sectors that will support long-term growth. The contribution of external sports consultants also stands out.
The World Rugby report also recognizes several challenges to overcome, but the effect of being able to develop professional players through Selknam’s team in the American Rugby Super League is seen as positive. Thus, Chile Rugby, after starting with its High Performance together with South America Rugby, now participates in the countries that receive investment from World Rugby for this level of play.
