NEWS: Jets join forces with Oaks Hotels & Resorts

Newcastle Jets has today forged a fresh partnership with one of Australia’s leading accommodation providers, Oaks Hotels & Resorts.

Oaks Hotels & Resorts currently manages a portfolio of 54 properties across four countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, and the United Arab Emirates, and will soon branch out into India.

In and around Newcastle, the Hunter Valley and Port Stephens, Oaks Hotels & Resorts offers four idyllic resort destinations for travellers seeking deluxe accommodation and quality leisure facilities in sought after holiday locations.

Oaks Hotels & Resorts will be recognised as the Official Accommodation Partner of the Newcastle Jets for the remainder of the Hyundai A-League 2016/17 Season, and the Club will employ a variety of match day, business to business, and digital strategies to provide value and exposure to the market leading hotel and resort operator.

“On behalf of Oaks Hotels & Resorts we are thrilled to confirm our partnership with Newcastle Jets for the 2016/2017 season,” Chief Operations Officer of Oaks Hotels & Resorts, Mr Mike Anderson, said.

“The opportunity to support the Newcastle community and its surrounding areas, where we have four resort properties and a large number of locally based staff, is an important regional focus for us and we look forward to getting behind the team for a successful season.”

In late November Newcastle Jets players Steven Ugarkovic, Jack Duncan, Nick Cowburn and Kristian Brymora visited the newly refurbished Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort in the Hunter Valley for a round of golf at its picturesque par 72, 18-hole championship golf course.

Newcastle Jets Chief Executive Officer, Mr Lawrie McKinna, said the Club hopes to develop a long-term and mutually beneficial partnership with Oaks Hotels & Resorts.

“We are delighted to have added Oaks Hotels & Resorts to our developing family of commercial partners,” McKinna said. “We will be hosting football focused activations at Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort and its Port Stephens properties over the coming months, which will hopefully prove to be successful and lead to further collaboration.”
