Wednesday, March 26th, 2014 - EP Marketing

Today will see the release of a limited number of tickets for Game 1 of the 2014 State of Origin series going on sale to the public. With only 63 days until the 2014 State of Origin series kicks off it is likely that this year will see fans scrambling again to secure their spot at “the Cauldron” (Suncorp Stadium,  Brisbane) for one of Australia’s greatest sporting rivalries.

Maroons fans will be salivating at the possibility of a prospective 9th year as the State of Origin champions and Blues players and fans hoping to end their drought. There were plenty of encouraging signs for Blues fans in last years series but they will still be up against a Maroons team full of confidence.

Fans looking to buy tickets will need to be fast with the Brisbane games of State of Origin regularly selling out weeks before kick off. However, fans that miss out on publicly released tickets may still have a way to secure a ticket to the games and be part of the electric atmosphere of the 2014 series.

Tickets to Brisbane games are included in the State of Origin Corporate Hospitality Packages available through sellers officially licensed by Queensland Rugby League.

Russell Edwards, of EP Marketing, is licensed to sell corporate packages at State of Origin games in Brisbane. Mr Edwards said that demand has already been high for the exclusive packages he has available for the 2014 series but there are still some places available. According to Mr Edwards, it’s not just corporate clients taking up the VIP Packages traditionally associated with corporate entertainment. More fans are using the corporate hospitality packages to secure their ticket to the game and enjoy an experience far beyond that available to regular ticket holders. VIP Packages give exclusive opportunities for guests such as chatting and watching the games with Origin Legends, gaining access to the stadium playing area, watching the Maroons warm up as well as numerous other special opportunities.

Mr Edwards said “With tickets always in high demand and selling out fast I think fans are realising now that the corporate hospitality experience gives them a special opportunity to secure a ticket in the premium positioned Western Stand near coach Mal Meningas Coaches box. In addition to that all corporate package guests receive access to a range of other amazing privileges and bonuses. While these packages are very popular for corporate entertaining there are more and more fans taking up these packages to enjoy a uniquely memorable experience.”

The corporate packages available this year from EP Marketing include the opportunity to watch the game with QLD State of Origin legends Michael Crocker and Ashley Harrison. All corporate guests will also receive a personalised Qld Maroons jersey and the privilege of going out onto the sacred playing arena of the “Cauldron”, Suncorp Stadium before the game.
