Corporate Partners, Media, Management and Players gear up for A-League Season with only 9 days left!

The countdown to the 2011/2012 A-League season is reaching its crescendo as Jets players gathered with more than 200 corporate partners and members of the media last night to launch the Newcastle Jets' campaign.

The Honeysuckle Hotel was the perfect venue as guests arrived to a wash of red and blue lighting and young free-style footballers showing off their skills.

Hosted by Fox Sports' Mel McLaughlin, the launch was a chance for the Jets to say thank you to the corporate partners who are committed to making the coming season a success on and off the field.

It was also an opportunity for Jets partners to be introduced to the A-League, Youth League and W-League teams and coaches.

"This is an exciting period for not only the players, but also the coaching staff and club management. It's what we have been working towards during a long pre-season and our season launch really shows us how close we are," said Jets Coach Branko Culina.

"As a Club we are so appreciative to our corporate partners, they help make our life off the field easier and it's great for the boys to meet these people and spend some quality time with them," he said.

Corporate partners and media representatives were treated to an enjoyable evening supported by Drayton's Family Wines, Carlton United Brewers and fabulous food from the Honeysuckle Hotel.

Corporate Partnership and Hospitality opportunities are still available before the kick off the season, for details contact Mark Duffield-Thomas on 0457 100 539.
