THE biggest football game ever to hit Kingaroy will be kicking off in August.

Queensland Rugby League have announced the Intrust Super Cup competition will be coming to Kingaroy's TJ O'Neil oval on Sunday, August 10.

The game is expected to draw 3000-4000 eager rugby fans and will be broadcast on Channel Nine and WIN across Queensland, regional New South Wales and Papua New Guinea.

Kingaroy Rugby League president Mick Dugdell said a competition of this size had never reached the South Burnett before.

"This isn't just huge for rugby league but for the entire South Burnett," he said.

"We're trying to make it an entire weekend event."

The match will see the two 2011 grand finalist teams, the Tweed Heads Seagulls and the Wynnum Manly Seagulls go head-to-head along with local games before and after.

QRL Intrust Super Cup General Manager Jamie O'Connor told the South Burnett Times today the game would definitely feature future NRL stars.

"Without a doubt people will be seeing the future NRL stars on the field that day," he said.

"You only have to look at the level they're playing at, it is second to the NRL.

The announcement has come after 18 months of lobbying from South Burnett Rugby League, Nanango MP Deb Frecklington, mayor Wayne Kratzmann and councillor Barry Green.
