Tickets are set to go on sale at 3pm AEST today for the 2021 eToro Rugby Championship, which is set to welcome a plethora of rugby to Queensland.

Tickets will be available from just $49 for an adult, covering entry to both games run back-to-back and will allow a mate to join for free with an additional ticket included at no extra cost in certain categories.

Along with this, families will also have access to all the action on the Gold Coast, with a family of four starting at just $98 for both rounds three and six of the Championship, which will see Australia play South Africa for the first time since 2019.

The matches will then head to Suncorp, with special offers put in place for frontline workers with the ‘bring a mate for free’ offer also available in certain sections for the doubleheader on Saturday 18 September.

Queensland Country Bank Stadium in Townsville will then host its first-ever Test match on Saturday September 25, marked by the 100th Test between New Zealand and South Africa, with fans able to access four bronze tickets for just $100.

“It’s great to be able to go on sale for the upcoming Rugby Championship today," Rugby Australia Chief Executive Andy Marinos said in a statement

“Having these affordable and accessible ticket prices will only add to the festival of Rugby, which is set to takeover Queensland.

“It will mark the first-time fans can purchase a ticket to two games happening at the same venue on the same night, and we encourage fans to bring a mate along too and enjoy a great night out.

“This is a great chance to attract new fans to our great game, with the action to light up Gold Coast, Brisbane and Townsville over four thrilling doubleheaders.

“In addition to this, we’re also pleased to have our offer available for those frontline workers based in Brisbane. It is just a small token of our appreciation, and we hope it can provide an enjoyable night out for those members of our community who have sacrificed so much over the past 18 months.

“I’d encourage everyone to log on and take up one of the many offers. We saw how quickly tickets went for the Wallabies game in Perth this Sunday and are expect that will be replicated for the eToro Rugby Championship."
