Hockey in Chile
During the 1999 International Ice Hockey Federation's Annual Congress, held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in the USA, Chile was officially granted memebership into the IIHF. While hockey is still primarily an in-line game in Chile, and the ice hockey version is still very new; it has been rumoured that ice hockey was played in Chille, in the harbour city of Valparaiso, as far back as the 1970's. However, these rumours have never been substantiated, and it's quite possible that the game being played was field hockey.
