Call for all NSW fans to show their colours

NSW Origin fans, young and old, are being urged to be “loud, proud and blue” in 2011 when tickets to the only Sydney Origin game go on sale to the public from 10am AEDT on Thursday (March 17).

Almost 15,000 NSW supporters, the Blatchy’s Blues, converged on ANZ Stadium during last year’s series, creating a sea of blue and an amazing energy that NSW coach Ricky Stuart is determined to recreate in what will be the only Origin match to be held in Sydney on Wednesday, June 15.

This year the Blatchy’s Blues have introduced an area for families – the Born to Be Blue family zone - so junior players and young children can experience Origin firsthand. The cost is $100 for one child and one adult and both receive a blue wig and t-shirt, with seating just above the Blatchys Blues area.

Tickets have already been selling for the special Category 3 supporter bays for Game 2 in Sydney – which cost $60 and come with a wig and t-shirt – with Queensland’s Maroon Crusade supporters slightly ahead of Blatchy’s Blues in ticket purchases.

“It’s really important we get behind the team this year and give the boys all the support we can,” Stuart said.

“We only have one match at home and it is vital that we make the most of it and pack out ANZ Stadium with as many Blues fans as possible.

“We face a tough challenge to win back the Origin shield, but with the support of our fans – young and old - I know we are capable of doing it.”

To join Born to be Blue become a registered junior player and go to www.borntobeblue.com.au
