The second Holden Women’s State of Origin will kick off the NRL’s representative weekend of rugby league, with tickets on sale today for the match at North Sydney Oval on Friday 21 June.
After a successful inaugural stand-alone match, anticipation is building for the next instalment of women’s Origin history, with NRL General Manager of the Women’s Elite Program, Tiffany Slater predicting another fantastic occasion.
“Close to 750,000 viewers watched the women’s Origin on television last year, with 7,000 fans flocking through the gates to take in all the action live,” Ms Slater said.
“The match was played at an incredibly high pace and standard and preparations are well under way across both teams to ensure that the 2019 encounter will be just as enthralling.
“There’s nothing quite like Origin – it’s a rivalry without rival and it’s fantastic for our women’s Origin teams to be opening the representative weekend of rugby league.”
Destination NSW Chief Executive Officer, Sandra Chipchase said this event was a significant one for Sydney.
“The 2018 women’s Origin match was a huge success with fans near and far enjoying the game at one of Sydney’s most iconic sporting grounds, North Sydney Oval,” Ms Chipchase said.
“The NSW Government, through its tourism and major events arm Destination NSW, is proud to support women’s rugby league and this event will showcase great athleticism, teamwork and leadership here in the Harbour City which will entertain all attendees.”
Pre-purchased tickets will remain in line with 2018 prices, at $10 for adults and those under 15 years of age, free.
The 2019 Holden Women’s State of Origin is proudly supported by naming sponsor, Holden, together with the New South Wales Government, via its tourism and major events arm, Destination NSW.
