Challenge Cup

The Challenge Cup is a knockout cup competition for rugby league clubs organised by the Rugby Football League. Originally it was contested only by British teams but in recent years has been expanded to allow teams from France and Russia to take part.

It has been held annually since 1896, with the exception of the duration of World War I and the 1939–1940 season, and involves amateur, semi-professional and professional clubs. For the 2013 competition, 96 teams entered the tournament.

Famous quotes containing the words cup and/or challenge:

    In poorer lands
    No one touches the water of life.
    It has no taste
    And though it refreshes absolutely
    It is a cup that must also pass
    Until everybody
    Gets some advantage....
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail their failure must be but a challenge to others.
    Amelia Earhart (1897–1937)
