State Of Origin Is Coming To Adelaide Oval

Feb 14, 2018


FIVEaa breakfast has confirmed an NRL State of Origin game will be played at Adelaide Oval in 2020.

Tourism Minister Leon Bignell confirmed the news on FIVEaa and said he would be trying to secure the middle game in the best of three series.

“We expect 30 per cent of the people who go to the game will come from interstate. That’s going to pump $15 million into the economy,” he said on Wednesday.

"We’re hoping to get the middle game, which is obviously a really crucial one. That’s on a Sunday. The only problem is we’ll have to work with the AFL.”
