2021 NRL And State Of Origin Tickets: Here’s How To Secure Yours

The 2021 State of Origin Series kicks off next week. Here’s how you can secure your seats for the biggest derby in footy and your 2021 NRL tickets.

State of Origin

It’s been a thrilling start to the 2021 NRL season, and the good news is, we’re only just halfway through. 

From Valentine Holmes’ 80th-minute drop-goal against the Warriors to Tom Burgess’ clutch last-minute try, we’ve seen it all this year, but it’s safe to say the best action is still yet to come. 

With the Panthers leading the way, having gone on an incredible 12 game winning streak, all eyes are on the men from Penrith to undo their disappointing finish to the 2020 season. 

They’ll have a few more challengers this time around, and we’re in for an electric finish to this year’s rugby league season, with thirteen other teams all still in the mix for a finals spot this season. 

But next week, the rugby league world will turn its eyes away from the NRL to the biggest game in the sport’s calendar as the 2021 State of Origin Series kicks off on Wednesday night in Townsville.

With this year’s Origin Series taking off next week and a big four months of NRL footy ahead, we’re all set for a massive finish to this year’s footy season. Here’s our preview of some of the biggest matches coming up and where you can buy your 2021 State of Origin and NRL tickets.

2021 State of Origin Tickets

The biggest rivalry in Rugby League is set to resume next week, and no matter whether you’re red or blue, you do not want to miss out!  

Queensland and New South Wales are set to lock horns once again in the 2021 State of Origin Series, but this year’s three-game series will take a slightly different look. 

With Victoria going into a seven-day lockdown, the NRL have, at short notice, relocated the opening fixture of the series to the Queensland Country Bank stadium. It will mean that for the first time since 2017, current shield holders, Queensland, will now play both opening matches at home. 

Despite the Reds’ home advantage, the Blues could be the outright favourites this time around. With question marks arising over the availability of several Queensland stars, including last year’s Wally Lewis medalist Cameron Munster, the Blues stand an excellent chance of turning the Reds over next week. 

NSW head coach Brad Fittler is set to bring in multiple in-form stars from his former club Penrith, with current co-captains Nathan Cleary and Isaah Yeo set to run out next Wednesday alongside resurgent Rabbitohs star Latrell Mitchell.

It’s set to be a huge contest, so don’t miss out; pick up your 2021 State of Origin Tickets below!

Round 14: Parramatta Eels vs Wests Tigers - 13th June 2021

With vital points at stake, this is set to be a mouthwatering fixture with both teams vying to secure their place in this year’s finals series, particularly with the Tigers on the cusp of cracking the top eight. The last time these sides met, centre Blake Ferguson provided several moments of magic to seal the victory for the Eels that lifted them into the top four. It’ll be another colossal rematch; one NSW rugby fans will not want to miss out on

Round 15: Penrith Panthers vs Sydney Roosters - 18th June 2021

A fixture that almost always delivers, the Roosters will take on top of the table Penrith, who have now gone 12 wins on the bounce. The Panthers fans will undoubtedly fancy this one with the Roosters injury-depleted squad missing Luke Keary, Brett Morris, and Lindsay Collins, who all sustained ACL injuries earlier in the season. But that won’t stop Sydney from bringing the heat as they look to break into the top four this season. Act fast and secure your NRL tickets for round 15 now.

Round 20: Brisbane Broncos vs North Queensland Cowboys - 30 July 2021

The derby that always delivers. These two Queensland sides faced off in an absolute thriller back in May with a Valentine Holmes field goal and a try from Jason Taumalolo edging the match for the Cowboys. It’s been a tough year for the Broncos who currently sit 15th on the ladder, but they’re miraculously only four points off the top eight. They’ll be out for revenge in the return leg of this hotly anticipated rivalry. 

Round 20: The Grand Final Replay - 31 July 2021

We’re in for a Saturday night thriller with this top of the table clash. Melbourne Storm will host the Penrith Panthers at the AAMI Park in a replay of last year’s Grand Final. And if there’s any team that can knock the Panthers off their perch this year, it’s definitely the Storm. Although, they’ll have their work cut out to end the Panthers’ winning streak, considering Penrith’s defensive dominance, conceding only 88 points across the first 12 rounds of the season. It’s a contest you do not want to miss; secure your tickets via the Ticket Merchant here.

Round 24: Sydney Roosters vs Sydney Rabbitohs - 27th August 2021

What a way to end the regular season than with one of the oldest and fiercest derbies in sport. After losing the previous leg of this fixture, in a spicy round three standoff, the Roosters will be baying for revenge as they take on the Rabbitohs in a clash that could decide who makes the top four. With both teams sitting neck and neck in the race for a qualifying finals position, this fixture has all the attributes to become one of the best games of the season. Don’t miss out!

NRL Finals Tickets 

Things are hotting up in the top eight, and it’s anyone’s guess right now who’ll be playing in the NRL Finals Series this September. 

With eight points currently separating the top five teams and only two points separating the Titans, Dragons, Warriors, Sharks, Knights, and Cowboys, who are all on the cusp of an elimination finals place, we’re in for a thrilling finish come the end of the season. 

Finals tickets will go on sale towards the end of the year, but to avoid any disappointment, make sure to keep your eyes peeled on the Ticket Merchant’s information pages for updates on NRL and 2021 State of Origin Tickets.
