PM’s XIII annual rugby league fixture : Australia vs PNG schedule announced

 The Papua New Guinea Rugby Football League (PNGRFL) is very excited to announce the PM’s XIII annual rugby league fixture between PNG and Australia is back, and will be held in Port Moresby this month.

The last time the PM’s XIII matches were held here in PNG was back in 2018 for both the Men and Women.

CEO of PNGRFL, Stanley Hondina, in making the announcement said the PNGRFL were delighted to see the game back in PNG after 5 years, and fans will be treated to a massive weekend of rugby league come the 23rd and 24th of September.

He said, “For the first time in the history of the PM’s XIII matches, there will be 12 teams playing 6 games over 2 days, something that’s never been done before and we look forward to welcoming all our fans over the two days.”

The PM’s XIII concept is an initiative of both the PNG and Australian governments since 2005 and is aimed at using rugby league to drive social awareness messages. 

This year will see the introduction of the Australian school boys and girls taking on our Junior Kumuls and Orchids respectively, thanks to the Australian government, through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and the NRL.

The drawcard matches are on Saturday, while on Sunday, the fans will be treated to the up-and- coming stars of our game going head-to-head, with the Defence Men the final match of the day.

Hence, the ticket prices have been priced accordingly and keeping in mind that the prices are consistent with the 2017 Rugby League World Cup and the 2019 Great Britain Lions Tour to PNG.

While the Corporate Boxes have all been allocated to the Game’s major sponsors and dignitaries, there are still opportunities for individuals and companies to be a part of a weekend of world class rugby league.

Tickets will go on sale from 6pm today Online at Tiketmastas.com, while you can buy over-the-counter this Friday at the normal outlets including; Brian Bell Boroko, J-Mart Erima and Cool Stuff Rangeview
