For the first time, the Goal Programme is helping to invest systematically in the regional infrastructure of a country, namely Chile
. Regional bodies and clubs were encouraged to submit projects as part of a competition and the ten best projects were then presented to the Goal Bureau, before being approved on 15 October 2003. Work concentrated on laying pitches, building a stand, installing floodlights and building changing rooms, which were inaugurated in November 2004. The following clubs were successful with their applications: Coquimbo Unido, Union La Calera, Union San Felipe, Santiago Wanderers Quintero, Palestino, ANFA and O'Higgins Rancagua.
