Super League is the top-level professional rugby league club competition in Europe. The League has twelve teams: eleven from England and one from France. They are:
Salford Red Devils

The current champions are St Helens.
Super League began in 1996, replacing the RFL Championship and switching from a winter to a summer season. Each team plays 23 games between February and September: 11 home games, 11 away games and a Magic Weekend game at a neutral venue.
At the end of the season, the top eight teams enter the Super 8 phase to play for a place in the top 4 and a chance to reach the Grand Final which determines the champions.
