Australia's National Rugby League will be testing out 3D technology for their State of Origin football game.

On May 26 Australia’s National Rugby League State of Origin football game will be aired in 3D.  Watchable at home with a 3D television, or in 3D-capable cinemas, hotels and parks, the game will be the first sporting event to broadcast in 3D on free-to-air television, airing on Channel Nine before ESPN’s 3D June coverage of the FIFA World Cup.

3D Televisions were released into the Australian market earlier this month, so only a handful of Sydneysiders will have access to the 3D captured games from the comfort of their living room.
