The Newcastle Jets can confirm news from Football Federation Australia that the club’s final regular season game against the Central Coast Mariners has been re-scheduled from Friday 13 April to Saturday 14 April – kicking off at 7.50pm.
Football Federation Australia has today announced three changes to the Hyundai A-League 2017/18 season draw following a period of planning and consultation with clubs, broadcast and commercial partners, and other stakeholders.
The changes made to the season draw support the international ambitions of the clubs competing in the 2018 AFC Champions League.
The Newcastle Jets would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the flexibility and understanding of both Football Federation Australia and Fox Sports Australia in making these necessary changes to the Hyundai A-League draw.
The move to a Saturday night fixture will give fans a better opportunity to get the game and support a rivalry that has delivered some outstanding contests in recent seasons.
As with all #F3Derby fixtures on the Central Coast, Jets members are encouraged to make the most of the club’s reciprocal membership deal with the Mariners – meaning free entry to the away fixtures of the league’s original derby!
