The Challenge Cup which was born in 1896 is the oldest rugby league knockout competition involving teams from all over the Northern Hemisphere.

The Rugby Football League Championship had been the status quo for rugby league in England until 1996. That year Super League came in with big fanfare and with a promise revolutionise the game of rugby league across the globe. The rugby league season changed from winter to summer. The logic behind the change was to attract bigger crowds and reduce competition from other winter sports.

The Super League rugby competition has 12 teams with promotion and relegation. At present there are eleven teams from England and one team from France.
