Perth Origin tickets sell like hotcakes

After their first day on sale to the general public, close to 30,000 tickets have been sold for State of Origin II next year at Optus Stadium, Perth.

The match will be played Sunday, June 23 at the 60,000-seat venue in Western Australia.

It will mark the first time, barring the 1987 exhibition match in Los Angeles, an Origin match has been played outside of the eastern states of Australia.

Tickets have so far been purchased from as far away as the USA, the UK, the Netherlands and New Zealand.

An NRL spokesperson said corporate sales have also mirrored the strong general admission sales.

"Knowing how strong the interest has been we'd encourage fans to make sure they get in early to secure the best seats," the spokesperson said.

Queensland Maroons coach Kevin Walters and NSW Blues Coach Brad Fittler both toured Optus Stadium on Tuesday.
