State of Origin – Queensland Touch Football
June 18 - June 19
State of Origin – Friday 18th – Saturday 19th 2021
The 2020 State of Origin event has been postponed due to the impact of COVID-19. The event will be held at C.ex International Stadium, Coffs Harbour.
This event will run back to back, in NSW in 2021 and back home here in QLD in 2022. The event will then return to its normal two-year cycle in 2024.
The State of Origin timeline is currently being finalised in conjunction with Touch Football Australia (TFA). Event details will be made available as soon as we can confirm 2021 selection camp details.
Division Age grade Criteria – View full details here.
It was agreed that no player should be disadvantaged due to the 2020 event being postponed. Therefore given the uniqueness of what we are currently facing, the age eligibility will remain as it currently stands for the 2020 State of Origin., although the event will be run in June 2021.
Coaching staff will have the opportunity to add additional players to their squads with the 2020 QLD State Cup being the final selection opportunity for all teams. QLD touch believe this to be the fairest approach, which allows players who were unavailable due to medical reasons or extenuating circumstances an opportunity to perform at these events and be added to the squad given the event date change.
