The Aviva Premiership has taken place in1987 with different title sponsors (each sponsor has a 2-3 year tenure) with the present sponsor being Aviva. The various rugby clubs that participate in this premiership also qualify, through the premiership, for two premium club competitions in Europe, the European Challenge Cup and the Heineken Cup. The 2009-2010 champions in the premiership are the Leicester Tigers who also have a record in terms of the number of wins in the premiership - just one short of a decade with 9 titles. Entry into this premiership is subject to various rules as well as defeating clubs within the RFU Championship - as an example, the Exeter Chiefs enter the 'top tier' in the premiership after their defeating Britstol in an RFU Championship match.
This rugby event has a rich history behind it. Before its formation, the body behind rugby within the UK, RFU - Rugby Football Union - did not allow the formation of leagues in the UK. This was because of their reasoning that leagues would convert the 'amatuerish' rugby into a 'paid' player game as well as result in unfair and so-called dirty play. At that time, until 1972, the various clubs arranged friendly matches with each others as well as more 'traditional' matches. The only tournaments that existed were various county cups and championships. However, in 1972, the RFU allowed the creation of the RFU Club Competition - a knock-out that is the precursor to the present day Anglo Welsh Cup. As of this cup, various regional and national merit tables were drawn by the mid 1980s. this resulted in more competitive league like matches, a fact that many say has resulted in the deprecation of the traditional games, games that encompassed more time but were a classic in themselves.
In 1987, the first leagues that were formed were the Courage Leagues. This was more of a group of various leagues. In 1996, pro rugby as it is today came into being with several teams that now encompass the 12 within the Aviva Premiership. In 2000, the Zurich Premiership came into being. As of that day, the premiership takes place regularly and has a fixed format behind it. It takes place yearly from the moth of September to the month of May. It is made up of 22 different rounds, each with its own matches, with various clubs playing against their rivals at the home bases or away from their homes. With each match played, there are a number of points awarded on the basis of the match. At present, if a team wins a match, it is awarded 4 points and if a team draws, it is awarded 2 points. And that isn't all - if a team looses a match with 7 or less points, it is awarded 1 bonus point with the same number of points awarded if the team scores '4 or more tries' in a match.
After the 22 rounds take place, the ranking of the various teams is determined in terms of the number of points that they have scored. The first four eams within these standings enter the semi-finals. Matches are then played against each other - and the club that comes first in the semi finals plays a home game against the fourth with the 2nd against the 3rd in the same way. The winners of both matches then proceed to the finals at the Twickenham Stadium - a final you can watch provided you have the 'secret passcode'; Aviva Premiership Final tickets!
