The National Governing Body, Ghana Rugby League, was inaugurated on 6 April 2014 in Accra and became an Observer of the ERL federation on August 7th, 2014. Ghana Rugby League became Rugby League Federation Ghana on December 17th, 2015. In March 2016 the First University of Ghana Rugby League Inter-Hall Games were presented between Legon Hall,  Liman Hall,  Akuafo Hall,  Mensah Sabah and the International Students Hostel.

Since it's inception, and the forming of the RLFG, Rugby League has quickly accelerated in the capital of Accra, cementing the community game from 2016 with the introduction of an annual Rugby League 9’s Series, 13 a-side Club Championship, Higher Education Inter-Hall competition and more recently engaging women and girls.

In 2018 Sam Leach was appointed as RLFG General Manager  with the main purpose of creating a robust organisational structure and administering senior and youth championships as highlighted in the ERL Federation's press release

In 2019, and within the 12 months following, the RLFG partnered the University of Ghana to organize a six team inter-hall 13’s tournament. This was followed by the formation of a four strong club competition, namely; Skolars, Bulls, Panthers and Pirates. The four proceeded to play a standard 13’s Championship with the best players representing the national team, finishing third at the Middle East Africa (MEA) Championship held in Nigeria.
