In the present work we study the predictions for WZ and ZZ production at the LHC with the Electroweak Chiral Lagrangian (EChL) approach. Our analysis will be focused on the less favored case from the experimental point of view, in which the predictions for the gauge bosons scattering amplitudes are considered in the low energy range where, by construction of the low energy approach, they reveal no resonant behavior. The study includes the complete set of amplitudes for all the polarization states of the initial and/or final gauge bosons and makes no use of the Equivalence Theorem. We express the results in terms of the range of values of the chiral parameters that will be accessible at the LHC.
