The North Eras Cup, commonly known as the NEC Cup or by its initials NEC, is the largest rugby club championship competition in Vexillium's Northern Hemisphere, consisting of clubs in the nations of the Shaelia, Kemedal, Ludonia, Somery and Kansinia. The competitions twelve sides compete against one another in a single table, with no division or pool system. Each club plays a total of 22 matches during the regular season which runs for 23 weeks, generally from April through August, with the Grand Finals contested in mid-September.

The clubs in the top four places on the competition table at the conclusion of the regular season enter the finals leg of the championship, consisting of two knockout stages. The semi-finals are contested to decide the two finalists, which is played at the highest ranked winners' home ground, as opposed to a pre-selected neutral venue.

The current competition was inaugurated in 288 AP as the current 12-club competition to better promote and grow the sport of rugby on the continent of Eras. The terms Super Rugby or Championship Rugby are sometimes used when talking about the North Eras Cup competition.

As of 309 AP, North Eras Cup matches are now broadcast in 17 countries around Vexillium.
