Newcastle Jets Chief Executive Officer, Lawrie McKinna, said: “Newcastle Jets agreed to play Audax Italiano in July 2017 after being engaged by a match promoter.
“Club staff have worked diligently to assist the match promoter leading into what would have been a unique international friendly for our Club, team, members and fans.
“Nevertheless, factors outside of our control mean that Audax Italiano will no longer travel to Australia next month.
“All fans that have purchased a ticket to the match will be refunded in full.
“We apologise to our members and fans who, like us, were looking forward to this fixture early in our 2017 pre-season,” McKinna said.
Ticketmaster will make contact with all ticket purchasers to arrange the issuing of refunds. All tickets purchased via credit card will have their payment automatically refunded.

Newcastle Jets will commence 2017 pre-season training under new Head Coach Ernie Merrick on Thursday 22 June 2017.
