SAUDI ARABIA RUGBY LEAGUE NATION OVERVIEW
Foundation Year – 2009
International Team – Saudi Arabia Rugby League
Top level domestic competition – None
History – Saudi Arabia are a new Rugby League playing nation and continues the trend of Middle Eastern nations taking up the sport.
In early 2009 Saudi Arabia were unranked in world rankings but were awarded official observer status by the Rugby League International Federation.
The recent success of the Rugby League World Cup will provide further funds to develop the sport throughout the Middle East. The Rugby League International Federation (RLIF) will now have more funds to invest in development officers and continue assisting rugby league’s growth. With the right support many more nations including Saudi Arabia could possibly be involved in the 2013 Rugby League World Cup qualifiers.
