State of Origin 2021
Melbourne Rugby League fans delight; we are very excited to announce that the iconic MCG will host the State of Origin 2021 series opener on Wednesday the 9th of June!
Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium gets its turn on Sunday the 27th of June and Sydney's Stadium Australia will be the venue for the third match on Wednesday the 14th of July 2021!
“We’re excited to be taking Australia’s biggest sporting brand to Melbourne for the 10th time,” NRL boss Andrew Abdo said.
“The last year has been incredibly challenging for Victorians with the extended lockdowns and challenges. We’re delighted to be bringing State of Origin back to the city.
“It will give fans an exceptional live sports experience, and bring interstate visitors back to the hotels and restaurants.”
Last year’s Origin series was moved to the end of the year, rather than the middle, for the first time as a result of the COVID pandemic.
A highly-fancied NSW side was beaten by Queensland in a sensational boilover, with supercoach Wayne Bennett returning to lead the Maroons in a successful cameo appearance.
