O'Higgins Fútbol Club (Spanish: [oˈxiɣins ˈfutβol ˈkluβ]) also known as O'Higgins de Rancagua, is a Chilean football club based in Rancagua, that is a current member of the Campeonato Nacional. The club's home stadium is the Estadio El Teniente, opened in 1945 and renovated for the 2015 Copa América, which was hosted by Chile.

Founded in 1955, the club was named in honour of the country's founding father and supreme director Bernardo O'Higgins, after the merger of the clubs O'Higgins Braden and América de Rancagua. O'Higgins has won two Primera B titles, and in 2013 they won their first Torneo de Apertura 2013–14 against Universidad Católica, thanks to the head coach Eduardo Berizzo, and in 2014 they won the Supercopa de Chile at penalty kicks against Deportes Iquique. The team also has participated four times in the Copa Libertadores, once in the Copa Sudamericana in 2012, and once in the Copa Conmebol in 1992.

The club emblem is a phoenix standing upon the club's colours. The club has a long-standing rivalry with regional neighbours Rangers de Talca and Curicó Unido, and also with the Santiago's clubs.
