Description:
Paris Saint-Germain Rugby League (), also known simply as Paris Saint-Germain and familiarly as PSG-RL (), was a French professional rugby league club based in Paris. One of the founding members of the Super League, Europe's top rugby league competition, they competed for two seasons, from 1996 to 1997. PSG-RL was affiliated with the professional association football club Paris Saint-Germain F.C., and played their home games at Stade Sébastien Charléty.

The team was established in late 1995 by Paris Saint-Germain Sports Centre in an attempt to add a more European dimension to the new Super League. They played in the first ever Super League game on 29 March 1996, defeating Sheffield Eagles 30–24 before a crowd of 17,873. However, they performed poorly both on and off the field during their run, narrowly avoiding relegation to the second division and drawing diminishing crowds. During their two years of existence they won only nine, drew one, and lost thirty-four. In May 1997, at the end of the Super League II season, following financial difficulties and the withdrawal of their officers, PSG-RL was dissolved and the experiment was generally considered to be a failure.Philip Dine, French rugby football: a cultural history, Berg Publishers, 2001, pp. 179
