The Lebanese Rugby League Federation is an Full Member of the ERLF, of which its predecessor, the Lebanese Rugby League Committee, was a founding member in 2003. Based 20km north of the capital Beirut, the LRLF is a member of the Lebanese Ministry of Youth and Sport and as such has a seat on the Lebanese Olympic Committee under Lebanese law.

The Federation is managed by a Board of Directors, constitutionally mandated for four-years, which consists of representatives of the clubs and independent directors voted by the general assembly. The first LRLF Board was elected in December 2009 following the change in status of the founding LRLC to full federation and became Full Members of the ERLF, which they achieved in August 2011.

The LRLF’s mission and objectives are to establish the sport in all areas of Lebanon through good governance, ensuring democracy secularism and the inclusion of stakeholders; delivery of the sport’s fundamental skills and laws at a highly proficient and standardised level; the organisation of national and international championships and providing excellent leadership in the MEA region with the intention of developing rugby league beyond Lebanon’s borders.

The LRLF delivers Rugby League to children in Beirut and North Lebanon, runs a three-division championship LRL (Lebanese Rugby League Championship), CRL (Collegiate Rugby League Championship)& the SRL (Schools Rugby League Championships), plays Rugby League for 10-months of the year and has over 1000 registered participants.

Operationally, there are three departments: Operations, Coaching and Match Officials. Geographically, Lebanese rugby league is split into regions, with two, North Lebanon (including Tripoli, Koura and Akkar) and Beirut, fully active.

The Lebanese Rugby League Federation became RLIF full members in May 2012.
