The most popular sport in Kemedal is Rugby and
like several other soevereign nations on Vexillium the
country enjoys representation in the VRB World Cup.
Rugby is seen as a core part of Kemedal's national
identity, with Football a distinct second to Rugby.
Rugby in Kemedal is governed by the Undeb Rygbi
y Cymoedd (URC, Kemedal Rugby Union), which is the
second oldest Rugby governing body on Vexillium.
Rugby at the national
level is organised into four professional divisions:
Pencampwriaeth Genedlaethol (National Championship,
Prifadran y Cymoedd (Kemedalian First Division,
Ail Adran (Second Division, 16 teams)
Trydedd Adran (Third Division, 16 teams)
Below the professional
level is a number of semi-professional and amateur
leagues which feed the professional teams. There is also
the national knock-out cup called 'Rygbi Cup', for which
is competed by all rugby teams in Kemedal.
