Rugby League enters uncharted territory this November with the State of Origin set to be played after the NRL Premiership season.

The NRL has announced the 2020 State of Origin fixtures will be played on November 4, 11 and 18, which means the series will be played across three consecutive weekends for the first time in history.

The venues for the three games are yet to be finalised.

NRL interim CEO Andrew Abdo said the rescheduling of the Origin series this year was a silver lining for fans, with the opportunity to showcase uninterrupted series a selling point heading into November.

"The changes to the schedule this year have allowed Origin to be played after the grand final – which is a first for the game, 40 years after the birth of the country’s biggest sporting rivalry," he said.

"And to have our women’s Origin match on prime time on a Friday night – just two days after game two of the men’s series – will make this two-week period an historic one for the sport.

"This season will offer storylines, drama and excitement that cannot be scripted. Kick-off cannot come soon enough for all of us."
