Make the Most of Your State of Origin Packages with Boys Trip

Rugby fans, take note: if you’re planning a State of Origin trip from NZ to Australia, there are some things to keep in mind to get the most from your experience. There are few occasions as exciting as attending a live sporting event, and nothing beats the experience of organised sports travel without the hassle. Start with these tips for a successful trip.

Plan as Far in Advance as Possible

You’ll want to book your State of Origin packages as early as you can because events this big fill up quickly. You may have fewer options for upgrades on flights, rental cars, and hotel rooms if you wait. As soon as you know you want to go, contact Boys Trip to get the ball rolling so that you know you’ll have a way to get there and a place to stay.

Be Sure to Buy Tickets from a Reputable Source

Each year, there are rampant scams involving counterfeit tickets. When you make your travel arrangements through a reputable company like Boys Trip, you can be confident that you won’t have any trouble with your tickets when you arrive. It can be risky to purchase tickets from an unknown individual, but you can be entirely sure that your tickets are valid when you organise your excursion with a reliable sports travel company.

Arrive Early

If you barely make it on time, you’ll miss out on the pre-event ceremonies. Don’t spend that precious time stuck in traffic, looking for parking, or waiting in a crowded queue to get inside. Getting there early will help you make the most of your time and enjoy the event to the fullest. You’ll also be able to check out the tailgating scene and soak up the crowd’s energy in anticipation of the big event.

Be Respectful

At any sports event, competing fan bases will engage in some good-natured ribbing. Don’t allow things to escalate from taunting and teasing to provoking and fighting. Especially because the diehard fans around you are likely to be in varying states of sobriety, things can quickly get out of hand.

Have fun representing your team with your favourite guys and gals–but do it with class and restraint. Fighting will get you removed from the venue, and you’ll miss out on the event you’ve waited so long to attend.

Make Your List and Check It Twice

Check ahead of time to see what is and isn’t allowed inside the venue. If you show up are the gate with disallowed items, you’ll either be turned away or asked to discard the items in question. You probably won’t be permitted to bring in your own food and drinks, so consider eating outside the venue before you arrive. Don’t forget to bring a portable charging device for your phone–you don’t want to miss any of the action as you recharge.
