The Rugby-Bundesliga is the highest level of Germany''s rugby union league system, organised by the German Rugby Federation. The German rugby championship was first played in 1909 and, with the exception of 2002, has always been determined by a final. The Rugby-Bundesliga was first played in two divisions in the 1971-72 season and soon consisted of eight teams in the North and eight teams in the South. However, of the eight southern teams, five were located in Heidelberg and after 1975 all northern teams were from Hanover. The league has changed its format a number of times over the years. In 1997-98, it played as a single-division league with eight teams. From 1998 to 2001, it was divided into two regional divisions again.

Luxembourg has no domestic league of its own, so RCL plays in neighbouring countries' leagues, they currently play in the German 2nd Rugby-Bundesliga South/West, having previously competed in the Belgian and French National Leagues. Founded in May 1973, RCL was the first Luxembourgian rugby club, established by a group of British expatriates working in Luxembourg City. The club consisted then and still does today of a bewildering mixture of nationalities, cultures, creeds, languages : Belgian, French, English, Irish, Welsh, Scottish, Australian, South African, Portuguese, Spanish, German, Dutch, Italian, Fijian, Norwegian, Luxembourgish, American, New Zealander, Venezuelan, and Argentinian. This is in contrast with Rugby Club Walferdange, which takes most of its players from the local community.
Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Sport - Sportsoziologie, Note: 1,0, Universität Bremen, Veranstaltung: Sportwissenschaft, Kulturwissenschaft, Soziologie, Gender Studies, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: 'Homosexualität ist abnormal, Ich werde niemals Homosexuelle in mein Team berufen' So drastisch äusserte sich Otto Baric, ehemaliger Teamchef der kroatischen Fussballnationalmannschaft, inwieweit homosexuelle Spieler in der Fussballwelt willkommen sind. Auch wenn er als Hardliner diesbezüglich angesehen werden kann, so spricht er einen Sachverhalt an, der dazu führt, dass es derzeit keinen aktiven Fussballer in der Regional- oder Bundesliga gibt, der sich zu seiner Homosexualität bekennt. Es liegt somit die Grundannahme nahe, dass der Fussball eine Welt ist, die der Homosexualität feindselig gegenüber eingestellt ist, sonst würden schwule Spieler, die es zweifellos gibt, ihre sexuelle Orientierung wahrscheinlich nicht verstecken. In anderen Teilen der Gesellschaft gibt es bereits viele Berühmtheiten, die sich geoutet haben, ohne dass diese fürchten müssten, ihr Ruf bzw. ihre Karriere könne dadurch zu Schaden kommen. Einschlägige Beispiel dafür sind der Berliner Bürgermeister Klaus Wowereit, der Komiker Hape Kerkeling oder der Musiker Elton John. Auch in anderen Sportarten ist es kein Tabu mehr seine homosexuelle Identität preiszugeben. Das beste Beispiel hierfür ist der walisische Rugby Nationalspieler Gareth Thomas, der nach seinem Outing 2009 erfolgreich weiterspielen konnte. Doch die weltweit beliebteste Sportart Fussball scheint hier als Gesellschaftsbereich noch weniger offen zu sein, und traditionelle Geschlechterrollen aufrechtzuerhalten. Doch warum hält der Fussball beharrlich an überkommenen Werten und Normen fest und weigert sich gesellschaftliche Wandlungsprozesse anzuerkennen? Möglicherweise ist das Fussballstadion der letzte Ort an dem 'echte Männlichkeit',was auch immer hinter diesem Begriff stecken mag, gelebt wird. Einen neuen Diskurs eröffnete 2013 das Outing des amerikanischen Fussballprofis Robbie Rogers, der somit derzeit der einzige aktive Spieler ist, der sich in einer westlichen Majorleague zu seiner Homosexualität bekennt. Diese Arbeit soll weniger zu einer Genderdebatte beitragen oder eine Ideologie zu dieser Thematik vertreten. Vielmehr wird hier der Fussball als 'Arena der heteronormativen Männlichkeit' mit aktuellen gesellschaftlichen Analysen um das Feld Fussball verglichen, die darüber Aufschluss geben, ob sich hier, besonders durch das Outing des Fussballspielers Rogers, ein Kulturwandel vollziehen könnte.
