The Robot Fighting League was a USA-based organization of combat robot event organizers. Their stated missions were:
to promote the sport of fighting robots;
to provide consistency between events;
to support builders and event organizers.
The RFL was founded in November of 2002 and claimed more than 20 event members from the US and Canada. The RFL had a set of uniform technical regulations for robots entering RFL events, and created standards for describing the suitability of arenas for differing competition types. The RFL hoped to become the official event sanctioning body for the sport.
Robots qualified for the championships by competing in RFL sanctioned events throughout the year.
