The first rugby league team representing Colombia was organized by the Australian-based Latin Heat Rugby League organization in 2016, with a team of Colombian expats taking part in various competitions and small-sided matches against other teams representing Latin American nations. The first Colombian rugby league team, the Nativos, was established in the city of Antofagasta, Chile in 2017. Colombia made their international rugby league debut in the inaugural Latin American Rugby League Championships held in Los Ángeles, Chile in November 2017, losing 36-6 to Argentina in the first RLIF-sanctioned international on South American soil.[1][2]
