Fans will be able to watch the best Rugby League players across Australia and New Zealand for as little as $35, while families can attend for less than $100, as part of this year’s Representative Round.
General admission public tickets are now on sale for the May 6 Test match between Australia and New Zealand, at Newcastle’s Hunter Stadium.
Individual General Public tickets for the Test match are available for $35, while family passes are available for as little as $95.
Additionally, tickets are on sale for the Pacific Double Header, on May 7 at Parramatta’s Pirtek Stadium.
General Public family packages are available for $60, while adult tickets are available for $20.
The Pacific Double Header will feature Tonga v Samoa as well as Fiji v PNG, and will be held on Saturday May 7. The Junior Kangaroos will play the Junior Kiwis in the curtain-raiser to the Pacific Double Header.
The Trans-Tasman Test match at Hunter Stadium will be Mal Meninga’s first match as coach of the Kangaroos.
The Harvey Norman Jillaroos will also take on the New Zealand Kiwi Ferns in the curtain-raiser to the Trans-Tasman Test.
“Representative Round will showcase some of the game’s best players, across our juniors, our women and of course our seniors,” NRL Head of Football Todd Greenberg said.
“The May Test will no doubt be a great contest as always. In his time so far as part of the Kangaroos program, Mal Meninga has brought some real passion to the jersey and I’m sure that will be replicated against the Kiwis.
“The Kiwis, on the other hand, have had some real success against the Kangaroos in recent times and will be looking to continue that dominance.
“The Pacific Double Header has been a real success and I’m sure will be another wonderful spectacle.
“As with all of our major events the prices will increase marginally the closer we get to the games so I would encourage our fans to get in early and secure their tickets to what shapes as a fantastic weekend.”
Tickets for the 2016 AAMI Country v City will go on sale tomorrow (Thursday), with adult tickets available for just $15, and family passes available for $40.
CRL Chief Executive Terry Quinn said he was excited to showcase the facilities at the new and improved Scully Park Regional Sporting Precinct.
"We encourage rugby league fans from throughout the Northwest to get their tickets early and show their support for representative Rugby League in the bush," Mr Quinn said.
“Last year’s clash was a sold out before kick-off and we’d love the people of Tamworth show the same support for this fixture.
“We will be announcing a number of events and promotions planned around the 2016 AAMI Country v City match in the coming weeks, where locals will have the opportunity to meet their Rugby League heroes.
“The match is always a highlight of the Country Rugby League Calendar and the fact that supporters can see some of the best players in the game in action for $15 for adults, $8 for children and $40 for families is tremendous value.”
“Scully Park Regional Sporting Precinct is a state-of-the-art facility that is perfect for hosting elite level representative Rugby League matches and perfect for television broadcasters and attendees of the Country v City Origin match.”
NSWRL CEO David Trodden said the annual Country v City Origin fixture is an important match which acts as a State of Origin rehearsal for NSW VB Blues coach Laurie Daley.
“It plays an important part in helping Laurie and his coaching staff identify those players who ready to take that step into the Origin arena,” Trodden said.
"It gives them the opportunity to recognise players who excel under pressure.
“Equally important though is that it is a great opportunity for Rugby League fans in the country to get to see some of the state’s best players in a first-class event.”
