Adelaide to host richest game in rugby league history

South Australia has trumped “rugby league” states to host the richest game in rugby league history with the Adelaide State of Origin fixture to earn the code $75,000 per minute.

It's in the Telegraph so I dont have access.

Awesome. Soo is massive... a bit like the olympics, grand finals, Melbourne cup etc in that people like to watch these events ... regardless of interest in the sport per se. So well done soo and good decision by the arl (or is it nrl) to expand the game and use this marquee event to do so. For week everyone will be talking soo in Adelaide and the rating will be higher I suspect. Same happens when it comes to Melbourne or Perth etc. so great move. The benefits to SA will be massive .. people flying I. From nsw and qld ... hotels booked, shops busy. Money well spent and a win win.

Fred, Origin Its about Rugby League . The best of the best. Pride Passion, Rivalry but First and foremost a Rugby League match! just as the Melbourne cup is horse racings elite event or Friday night is AFL's elite event.


And it was a decision by the South Australian Government.

$6 Million for 1 game (its quite a huge figure)

also to note this figure is only included if crowds are aloud at capacity.
