Super League

Super League is the top-level professional rugby league club competition in Europe. As the result of a sponsorship deal, it is officially the Stobart Super League. The League has fourteen teams: thirteen from England and one from France. The current champions are Leeds.

Super League began in 1996, replacing the RFL Championship and switching from a winter to a summer season. Each team plays 27 games between February and September: 13 home games, 13 away games and a Magic Weekend game at a neutral venue. At the end of the season, the top eight teams enter play-offs leading to the Grand Final which determines the champions.

The Super League champions play against the winners of the Australia/New Zealand Competition National Rugby League in the World Club Challenge.

Famous quotes containing the word league:

    Stereotypes fall in the face of humanity. You toodle along, thinking that all gay men wear leather after dark and should never, ever be permitted around a Little League field. And then one day your best friend from college, the one your kids adore, comes out to you.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)
