Watching Rugby League in Malta
Rugby League is available to all players and fans alike. Supporters wishing to watch a game of rugby league LIVE in Malta are advised to check www.malteserugbyleague.com for latest details regarding upcoming fixtures and if travelling from abroad, are asked to contact the MRL for more information.
Watching Super League, The Championship, NRL and State of Origin
Many pubs and bars show rugby league around Malta and Gozo.
While NRL is not officially licensed to be shown in Malta, you can often find a bar with a satellite streaming a match from Australia's premier competition.
Patrons are encouraged to pop into a bar the day before and ask the bar manager to confirm if a match will be showing. If the bar is unable to show the match, ask for another bar that will.
Locations usually popular for bars showing rugby league include Sliema (Portside Lounge), St Julians, Paceville (The Nordic Bar), Qawra, Bugibba and Mgarr (The Hatch).
State of Origin
The MRL receives many enquiries about watching State of Origin (SOO) in Malta. SOO is one of the most popular rugby events available worldwide and the MRL finds that Portside Lounge at Sliema's The Strand is always the location to catch this amazing series. The first match is usually quiet, but by Game Three, Portside Lounge is filled with British and Maltese alike, as well as many Australians that are on holiday in Malta, to watch all the action from this high intensity series of rugby league.

On the island of Gozo, Bojangles (Marsalforn) and Universal Sports (Gozo Stadium, Xewkija) are popular locations for watching rugby league.
Live Streaming Online
Often unreliable, links can be found online to watch all the latest pro rugby league action from Australia and Europe via live streaming. These links are prone to going offline prior to, or during matches, and can see you accumulate a high download rate so you are advised to check with your ISP if your internet connection can allow such live streaming.
