The Super League is Europe's top level professional rugby league club competition in Europe. The 2011 Super League season (known as the Engage Super League XVI for sponsorship reasons) was the sixteenth season of rugby league football since the Super League format was introduced in 1996.[1] In 2011 The league had fourteen teams: thirteen from England and one from France. In partnership with Sky Sports, Engage Mutual Assurance - title sponsor of the Super League - donated £100 to the Steve Prescott Foundation and £100 to a charity nominated by the Man of the Match, at all live televised Super League games. Over the full season, donations to a variety of charitable causes totaled over £12,000.
