Sydney and Townsville to host women's Origin series

Sydney and Townsville will host matches in the historic 2023 Ampol Women’s State of Origin Series.

The National Rugby League (NRL) today announced that the first ever two-match series will be played in June and hosted by Sydney’s CommBank Stadium and Townsville’s Queensland Country Bank Stadium.

The match details are as follows:

  • Game I: Thursday 1 June | CommBank Stadium | Sydney
  • Game II: Thursday 22 June | Queensland Country Bank Stadium | Townsville

“For the first time ever, two women’s State of Origin matches will be played as part of a series,” NRL CEO Andrew Abdo said.

“Women’s Origin has grown significantly since the first match in 2018. The matches at CommBank Stadium and Queensland Country Bank Stadium will provide another opportunity to showcase the best female players in modern stadiums in front of passionate Queensland and New South Wales fans.

“Another exciting change is that the games will be played during primetime on Thursday nights.”
