In May 2020, New South Wales Touch Association (NSWTA) and Queensland Touch Football (QTF) in collaboration with the host venue and Coffs Harbour City Council made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 State of Origin due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
NSWTA and QTF can confirm the 2020 State of Origin will be held Friday 18 – Saturday 19 June 2021 at C.ex International Stadium, Coffs Harbour.
“We’ve seen the considerable disruption of events and community competitions nationally in 2020, so we’re excited that our marquee event Touch Football’s State of Origin will be able to proceed as planned.
“We are committed to providing the opportunity for players/coaches to represent Queensland, however, we are aware circumstances can change with limited notice in the current environment.” said Greg Denny, QTF CEO.
QTF will hold the Queensland State of Origin selection trials on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 March on the Gold Coast, thanks to the support of the City of Gold Coast.
“We’d like to congratulate the players and coaches on their State of Origin squad selection and thank them for their patience.” said Denny.

QTF is dedicated to providing a safe environment for all players and spectators and both the event and camps will have strict COVIDSafe preventative measures in place and comply with relevant Queensland / New South Wales government requirements.
Further information regarding the Queensland selection camp registrations, payment, selection trials and venue details will be distributed to all participants in the coming week.
