The State Of Origin competition sees a three-match series contested between NSW and Queensland that usually begins in early June and finishes in the middle of July. Each Origin series sees either New South Wales Blues or Queensland Maroons play two of the series’ three games at their home ground, however recent times have seen some State Of Origin games played at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, most notably in the series decider in 2006, which the Maroons won. In 2013, NSW held the advantage of having two home games.

 

Players are selected to represent the Australian state in which they played their first senior rugby league game, hence the name 'state of origin'. Prior to 1980 players were only selected for interstate matches on the basis of where they were playing their club football at the time. In both 1980 and 1981 there were two interstate matches under the old selection rules and one experimental "State of Origin" match. From 1982 onwards a best-of-three match series has been played around the middle of the rugby league season for the State of Origin shield. Since its inception, total victories for each side were once extraordinarily even, however between 2006 and 2013 Queensland won every series. 

The 2017 State of Origin series will be the 37th time the annual best-of-three series between the Queensland and New South Wales rugby league teams to be played entirely under 'state of origin' rules (1980 and 1981 were only one game series).

Game one and three will be played in Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium, with game two being played in Sydney at ANZ Stadium.

Former Queensland rugby league legend Kevin Walters will coach Queensland for the 2nd year after his maiden series win in 2016. Former Canberra, New South Wales and Australia captain Laurie Daley will coach New South Wales for the 5th year, looking for his 2nd series win after New South Wales' 2-1 win in 2014.

 
Originally, New South Wales were to host two home matches this year, however the ARLC Commission announced in November 2012 a new five-year cycle which would see Queensland instead host two home matches this year, as well as in 2017, the Blues to host two home matches in 2016 and the remaining match in 2015 to be hosted at a neutral venue.
