2018 State of Origin Events

It’s Mate Against Mate, State Against State.

It’s the 2018 State of Origin Series! And Be Uplifted Inc is celebrating with two not-to-be-missed fundraising nights out.

Origin One

The first game of the 2018 State of Origin series is always a heart-stopping sporting event.

This year, the first State of Origin kicks off at 8.15pm on Wednesday 6th June 2018 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

An Exhilarating Match History

We have to say, the Mighty Maroons don’t have the best match history when it comes to playing at the MCG.

State of Origin football was first played in Melbourne back in 1994, when the first time showdown attracted a huge Melbourne crowd of 87,161 to see the Blues defeat the Queensland side 14-Nil.

Queensland got revenge on the next trip to Melbourne the following year, in 1995 beating New South Wales convincingly 20-12 at the MCG.

Queensland’s fortunes again changed in 1997, when a John Simon field goal during the 1997 State of Origin MCG clash caused the Maroons to lose the game and series by just one point to the Blues.

And in 2015, State of Origin football returned to the Melbourne Cricket Ground, this time with the Queenslanders losing 26-18.
