European Championships

In 1996 the first European Championships were conducted at the Halifax Rugby League Fields in northern England.

During the early years of it's development, Club teams and touring international teams were encouraged to participate as invitationals but were not allowed to compete for the Championship. This proved successful until the event could stand on it own, now only European teams may enter.

Such is the success of this event that it is the largest regional FIT event in the world.
