Murri Rugby League



Murri Rugby League is an annual four day rugby league carnival for Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander Queensland rugby league teams. Queensland Rugby League (QRL) has awarded the Arthur Beetson Foundation with the tender for the next three years. The Foundation has employed MRL (Qld Pty Ltd) to event manage the Murri Rugby League carnival.

Giving Back – A significant portion of Arthur Beetson Foundation generated revenue will be invested back into Indigenous Rugby League programs and structures endorsed by the QRL to establish sports focused sustainable community activities.

Aims – Murri Rugby League aims to:

Raise the representation of Indigenous players from the current 11% in the National Rugby League to 15%, an overall 4% growth in participation over a 3-5 year time frame.
Provide structure in a drug and alcohol free environment for players to have the opportunity to develop a direction into representation at a national level.
Work with the network of Indigenous communities in Queensland to promote and develop the carnival as a state event.
Develop a sponsorship alliance which will support the participation of all Communities and contribute to the staging of the carnival as an annual event.
