Ladbrokes Challenge Cup

The Ladbrokes Challenge Cup is a knockout cup competition for rugby league clubs across Europe. Originally it was contested only by British teams, but in recent years the entry has been expanded to allow teams from across Europe to take part.

It has been held annually since 1896, with the exception of the duration of the First World War and it involves amateur, semi-professional and professional clubs that compete in it, though lower ranked teams rarely reach the final stages of the competition. For the 2007 competition ninety-four teams entered the tournament.

The final of the Challenge Cup is one of the most prestigious matches in world rugby league, and is traditionally held at Wembley Stadium, London. Despite London not being an area traditionally associated with rugby league, the final receives a lot of mainstream media coverage and is broadcast around the world. London Skolars were knocked out of the competition in 2014 by Sheffield Eagles, with the trophy going on to be  lifted by Leeds Rhinos, defeating Castleford at Wembley.


League 1 Cup
