Where to buy State of Origin tickets September 2018

It’s not too late to grab some A-grade State of Origin tickets. Here’s how.

Can you feel it? There’s State of Origin fever in the air! But by now, even if there are still seats available through the official channels (let’s face it, you’re holding on to hope), ALL the best seats have already been snapped up by punters who have gotten to the checkout earlier than you.

FOMO settling in yet?

Don’t let it - because there are still plenty of ways to grab your ticket (legally) to be part of the magic, and this is how.

1. Turn to a ticket reseller

We’re not talking about a seedy scalper outside the doors of the big game. We’re talking reputable resellers of genuine tickets like Viagogo or online auction sites like eBay (from reputable sellers, obviously). At the time of writing, tickets to their 2016 games were starting at $58 (Game II) and with everything from Bronze to Stadium Members tickets on offer, you can bet you’ll have one enviable seat to watch all the action from. Try your local area on Gumtree.com.au for re-sold tickets too.

2. Check your Facebook feed

Many people sell their tickets on the social media platform. Update your status letting your network know that you're looking, your friends may have a connection who is selling their ticket.

3. Turn to your local barman

When the tickets are all gone or the price just isn’t right, then you don’t have to mope around your home on game night. Support your team with like-minded diehards at your local. See here for a full list of bars and venues that will be airing the games in Sydney, live.
See you at the game!
