The National Rugby League (NRL) is the top league of professional rugby league football clubs in Australasia. Run by the Australian Rugby League Commission, the NRL's main Premiership competition is contested by sixteen teams, fifteen of which are based in Australia with one based in New Zealand. It is regarded as the world's elite rugby league championship and, per season, is the most viewed and attended rugby football club competition in the world.
The National Rugby League is Australia's top-level domestic rugby-league club competition. It grew out of Sydney's local club competition, which has been running continuously since 1908.
