The Global Association of International Sports Federations have denied Rugby League is a sport in its own right. Please voice your objection to this by signing the petition.
Many players and fans enjoy playing both Rugby League and Rugby Union and it is unjustifiable to not recognise this fact. They are separate sports just like Ice Hockey and Field Hockey. Millions of fans watch Rugby League world wide with teams across the globe.
We want all fans, players and clubs of all codes to sign this petition demanding that the Global Association of International Sports Federations formally recognise Rugby League as a sport and the RLIF as the governing body.
It would add a great deal of weight if World Rugby made public their stance by signing up to object to this oversight.
