The Rugby Superleague (French: Superligue de rugby) is the highest level of professional rugby union in Kelssek. The competition is governed by the Kelssek Rugby Federation. Each team plays against each other once at home and away per season, with the team at the top of the table being awarded the league championship. The champions and runners-up represent Kelssek in the Rugby Union Challenge Trophy, rugby's main international club competition.
The Superleague is the second most-watched sports competition in Kelssek, after the Kelssek Hockey League.
