Super League RugbySuper League Rugby (also known as the Betfred Super League for sponsorship reasons) is the top-tier professional rugby league competition in Europe. Since its formation in 1996, it has become the most watched, most attended, and most successful rugby league competition in the world. Super League Rugby is contested by eleven clubs from England and France, who compete each year for the title of Super League champions. The current champion is the Wigan Warriors. The season consists of a regular season of 27 rounds, after which the top five teams play a single-elimination playoff tournament culminating in the Super League Grand Final, usually held in October. The team topping the table after the 27 rounds is declared the League Leader. The eleven clubs of the Super League are: Castleford Tigers, Catalans Dragons, Huddersfield Giants, Hull FC, Leeds Rhinos, Salford Red Devils, St. Helens, Wakefield Trinity, Warrington Wolves, Wigan Warriors, and Widnes Vikings. Several notable current players include New Zealand’s Benji Marshall, Eastwood’s Cooper Cronk, and England’s Sam Tomkins, Sean O’Loughlin, and James Roby. Since its inception, the Super League has produced exceptional moments, from Stuart Littler’s “arrive alive” tackle, to Danny Brough’s “Miracle Match” Grand Final win. Super League is a competition of action and drama, showcasing the very best of rugby league. In 2020, the Super League launched a new season format that featured two weeks of international competition prior to the group stage, and four teams from each country competing in the playoff stages. Historical figures also are being honoured, with the Super League awarding its first ever Hall of Fame inductees in 2020. The Super League’s audience continues to grow, with the competition regularly being broadcast around the world and the number of online viewers rising each season. With the increasing quality, exciting style, and international recognition the Super League is quickly becoming Europe’s premier rugby league competition.
