Newcastle Jets have announced a key extension with Port of Newcastle as a Major Partner for the following season, while they launched their 2023 Australia Cup jersey.
This will become the third year of the partnership, one which Port of Newcastle have featured previously on the Jets A-League Men’s home jersey, as well as both home and away kits for the A-League Women’s team.
Port of Newcastle is Australia’s deep water global gateway, the largest on the nation’s East Coast. It exists to build Australia’s prosperity with responsible, integrated and innovative supply chain solutions.
Port of Newcastle has many functions which include trade and port development, maintenance of major port assets, vessel scheduling, and wharf and berth services.
The Port has been in Newcastle for over 200 years and has become a critical asset of the region, making the partnership with the local Jets a congruent one.
Newcastle Jets Executive Chairman Shane Mattiske expressed his pleasure working with The Port of Newcastle.
“We’re really pleased to be continuing our partnership with the Port of Newcastle. It’s really important for us as a club to have a strong connection with an organisation that is a major part of the economy in this region,” he said via press release.
“It’s great to see the Port make such strong steps forward in the growth of their business with a move towards the new container terminal and the announcement of the clean energy precinct yesterday.
“I know the team looks forward to stepping out on Monday night in the new Australia Cup jersey with the Port of Newcastle logo proudly displayed on their chest.
“We’ve responded to the positive feedback from Members from our warm-up jersey from last season. We’re excited to launch an exciting new design for our warm-up jersey this season along with our new jerseys for the 2023/24 A-League season.”
As major partner of the Newcastle Jets for the past two seasons, Port of Newcastle has demonstrated their commitment to sporting communities across Newcastle, the Hunter Region and Northern NSW which shows the shared values between both parties.
This partnership continues to be a successful one for the Jets and this extension with The Port of Newcastle for a third season seems to be an easy decision as they try to progress up the table in the A-League Men’s competition.
