Super Rugby is a professional men's rugby union football competition in the Southern Hemisphere and Japan. Building on various Southern Hemisphere competitions dating back to the South Pacific Championship in 1986, with teams from a number of southern nations, Super Rugby started as the Super 12 in 1996 season with 12 teams from Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. The name was changed to Super 14 with the addition of two teams for the 2006 season, and with expansion to 15 teams in the three countries for the 2011 season, the competition was rebranded as Super Rugby (with no number). By 2006, matches were being broadcast in 41 countries. In 2016 two new teams, the Jaguares from Argentina and Sunwolves from Japan, joined the competition, playing in the newly separated African groups. In 2018, the competition underwent yet another change in format, this time however dropping two teams (Cheetahs and Kings) from the South African conference, and one from the Australian conference (Western Force). This left the competition with 15 teams.
