The stadium gained traction in Australian sporting folklore with the rise of the State of Origin concept which began in 1980, a three-game series between NSW and QLD that has evolved into the premiere event on the annual rugby league calendar. Lang Park was nicknamed “The Cauldron,” and was renowned for local fans euphemistically described as boisterous and parochial.
