Rugby is one of the oldest and most traditional sports in the UK, and London is not the exception. The Guinness Premiership is the top category of the professional rugby in England, where 12 teams compete each season.

The rugby season starts on September and finishes in March. There are 22 games, where each team plays twice with the others, once at home and once as visitor. The best 4 teams ranked at the end of the season play the semifinals, and the worst club has to play next season in the second category. Semifinals are played at the popular Twickenham stadium that is located at southwest London and is home of the English National rugby team.

The rugby clubs that compete in the Guinness Premiership have the possibility to qualify for the Heineken Cup and the European Challenge Cup. These cups represent the most competitive level among European rugby clubs. The 4 top ranked teams of the Premiership are qualified to these cups, but the system could vary depending on different facts, such as the last champion nationality, among others.

Rugby was born in England. This sport was practiced between students of private universities, which later determined the basic rugby rules that are used until nowadays.

The most popular England’s rugby clubs are:
