History

On August 6, 1987, Veterans Memorial Stadium, Long Beach hosted an exhibition match for the 1987 State of Origin series between New South Wales and Queensland. New South Wales defeated Queensland 30-18 in front of an attendance of 12,349.[1]
In 2011, the USA Rugby League started a developmental competition with 9 teams. Two of those teams were from California, the Los Angeles Raiders and Orange County Outlaws.[2]
Founded in 2018, the California Rugby League wanted to bring back a sport that had been missing from the state of California. On December 7, 2019, the CRL will have their first set of matches, between Sacramento and Santa Rosa and the Los Angeles Mongrel and San Francisco Savage, at Boxer Stadium in San Francisco.[3] The CRL will also be running youth clinics in Los Angeles at Marina Vista Park on November 9th and San Francisco at Balboa Park on December 7th.[4]
