Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Elite One Championship is a semi-professional top-tiered, exclusively French, rugby league domestic competition. The French Rugby League Championship began in 1934 but the current name and format were adopted in 2002 when the first game commenced in April. Currently the league is in its fifth year and features 11 clubs. Since then the league has strengthened both on and off the pitch with members of the French national team playing in the league and growing attendances - some derby matches now get crowds of 3,000. Recently the league has grown internationally too with players from Morocco, Serbia, Russia and Algeria. The season usually runs from October to April so that fans can also attend Catalans Dragons matches. Racing Club Albi have withdrawn from the 2008/9 season following financial problems and Toulouse Olympique have accepted an invitation to play in the British National League 1 from the 2009 season. Sporting Olympique Avignon have been promoted from LER2 to make up a league of 10 teams.show more
