Darren Lockyer has announced that 2011 will be his retiring year from NRL and representative rugby league. This means 2011 will also be his last State of Origin series playing for the Maroons. Barring injury or unforeseen circumstances Darren Lockyer is set to overtake the great Alfie Langer’s record number of appearances for Queensland during this year’s Origin Series.

Lockyer is widely regarded as one of the greatest players in the history of the game, playing 336 NRL games for Brisbane, 54 Tests for Australia and 33 State of Origin matches for Queensland.

With Game 1 of the 2011 State of Origin series on the 25th of May, fans are scrambling for tickets to Suncorp Stadium to be there to watch Lockyer’s final matches with the Maroons on Qld soil.

Lockyer has captained 18 Origin games since 2001 and every fan lucky enough to get a ticket to this year’s games will be a part of rugby league history seeing Lockyer play his last Origin matches. His team mates are promising this year’s series to be one of the best with the Maroons Captain in waiting Cameron Smith stating, “It wouldn’t sit well with me for a guy of his calibre to go out on a losing series”.

To farewell this sporting icon in style, EP Marketing are offering State of Origin corporate packages available for both games 1 and 3 at Suncorp Stadium. As well as enjoying premium viewing seats for the games at Suncorp Stadium the State of Origin Corporate Packages from EP Marketing also feature special guests Gorden Tallis and Wendell Sailor.

Fans who wish to join Tallis and Sailor at 2011 State of Origin Games 1 and 3 will need to secure one of the strictly limited number of corporate packages available from EP Marketing.
