About the 9-11 Memorial Challenge

On Sunday 11 September 2011 an invitational team from the Queensland Police Service played a representative team from the Queensland Fire and Rescue Service in the inaugural 9-11 Memorial Rugby League match.

The game was played as a memorial to the victims of the 9-11 terror attacks in the United States and in particular the New York Police Department victims and the New York Fire Department victims.

A memorial service was held remembering the victims prior to the commencement of the game.
