The Rugby League Challenge Cup is the oldest professional rugby football competition of any code. It was started in 1895 by the Northern Rugby Football Union which would later become Rugby league football. The Challenge Cup was modeled on soccer's FA Cup in that any team can compete in it but it is normally won by a professional side. The Challenge Cup final is traditionally played at Wembley Stadium in London.
