The NRL has today launched a new Marketplace, which will give fans the chance to buy re-sold tickets at their original price.
The new service is designed for people who can’t attend the event and want to recoup their ticket costs, the NRL says.
The service, which is being trialled ahead of State of Origin Game II next Wednesday night at ANZ Stadium, enables people the opportunity to buy and sell tickets in a secure and guaranteed environment, offering piece of mind.

The marketplace has been developed as an anti-scalping measure, with customers only able to re-sell their ticket for the face value, so they cannot make a profit.
An NRL spokesman encouraged fans to use the service over other platforms.
“This is a secure and trusted site where you can list and buy tickets with other fans,” the spokesman said.
“We would always encourage our supporters to use our authorised ticket services in order to ensure they do not go home disappointed.
“The only way to guarantee that you are able to attend your event is to purchase through the official seller or the approved Marketplace.”
