The Hellenic Federation of Rugby League was recognized by the Greek justice system in August 2013. The HFRL was the result of the “Committee for the foundation of a Hellenic Rugby League Federation” which operated as an NGO for several months.

The Federation is based in the capital, Athens, and is applying for full sports recognition status with the Ministry of Culture. The HFRL is managed by a Board of Directors, constitutionally mandated for four-years, which consists of representatives of the active clubs, voted by the general assembly. The HFRL has received RLEF Affiliate status in February 2014.

The first team pure Greek rugby league club was “Promitheas” in the Piraeus Region (est. 2011). During the 2012-2013 period, a local Athenian Championship took place, involving three teams. That was the first ever rugby league competition in Greece.
