The Top 14 is France's top level rugby competition, overseen by the French National Rugby League. The Top 14 is the highest level, with the relegated teams going to the Rugby Pro D2, and the promoted teams coming to the top 14. Previously, the competition was the Top 16, but has been reduced by two teams. The series started in 1892, making it one of the oldest rugby competitions out there, and originally there was just two sides, based in Paris, the Stade Francais and Racing Club. Racing Club was able to come out on top to win the inaugural tournament.
The Top 14 Orange is held every year and the champion from last year was Toulouse. Besides Toulouse, clubs include the Aviron Bayonnais, the Biarritz Olympique and the Union Bordeaux Begles. CA Brive is also part of the Top 14 competition, as well as Castres Olympique, ASM Clermont, Monpellier, USA Perpignan and Racing Metro. Others include Stade Francais Paris and RC Toulomais.
