“In other words, State of Origin will be affordable for all fans in 2016,” NRL Chief Commercial Officer - Interim, Michael Brown said.
“State of Origin is one of the biggest sporting events of the year and we want to ensure fans can attend,” he said.
Mr Brown said the ticket prices announced today were “early bird specials” and would increase marginally closer to the Origin dates. He said the early bird deals proved popular for this year’s Grand Final.
General public tickets will go on sale on Thursday (November 19).
Mr Brown said a new Origin series attendance was set in 2015.
“We want to take advantage of that momentum and continue to encourage fans to be there for sport’s greatest rivalry,” he said.
NSW Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events and Minister for Sport, Stuart Ayres added: “Next year’s State of Origin series promises to be explosive.
“I encourage all fans to book their tickets today and get to Sydney for this match, which is proudly supported by the NSW Government through our tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.”
