The KB Extraliga is a rugby club competition played in the Czech Republic and is the top level of rugby in the country. There is promotion between the KB Extraliga and the next (and only other) level down, the KB První Liga. As the name implies, the league is sponsored by Komerční banka (KB).

The season usually runs from September to May, although in the 2008 season, it was only from August through November 2008. Since 2008 the final has been played at the Synot Tip Arena in Prague.

RC Říčany are the current champions.

History[edit]

The league was first played in 1993, with Vyškov as the first champions. Prior to the foundation of the league, clubs competed in the Czechoslovak Championship.

It became known under its present name in 2003, when KB started sponsoring the Czech Rugby Union, as well as the national teams and leagues.
