The New York Knights are a semi-professional rugby league football team based in New York City. The team currently plays in the American National Rugby League (AMNRL). They play their home games at Pier 40 in Hudson River Park.
Originally known as the New York Broncos, the team was founded in 1997 and joined the league now known as the AMNRL for its inaugural 1998 season. They adopted their current name in 2001 after forming a team partnership with the Newcastle Knights of Australia's National Rugby League, who sent them jerseys. Since their inception the team have made a number of playoff appearances, and won the AMNRL Grand Final in 2002 and 2009. To date they have provided nine players to the United States national rugby league team and one to Japan.
