The Hunter Ports Newcastle Jets will kick off their 2012/13 campaign with a home match against Adelaide United. Head coach Gary van Egmond has recruited thirteen new players to his squad this season and will look to play his possession-based style of football.

This service is available from the Hunter Sports Superstore and on match days at the dedicated merchandise outlet on the Western Concourse.

We ask that those electing to have their name/number applied on match day are patient. Depending on demand, staff may ask that you return at half or full time to collect your completed customised strip.

Member Collections - Caps, Scarves, Junior Packs

The Newcastle Jets encourage Members to get behind the team by wearing their Member Caps to the first game. If you-re yet to collect your cap, scarf or junior pack, you can pick these up from the Hunter Sports Superstore between 9-5 Monday to Friday, and 9-12 Saturday. Remember, you MUST have your Membership Redemption Card/s in order to collect your inclusions.

If you can-t make it to the Hunter Sports Superstore prior to our first home game, Members can collect inclusions from the dedicated collection point on the ground floor of the Western Grandstand (behind the Western Ticket Boxes).
