Jets Members are being given an exclusive opportunity to have their say in the design of the Jets’ away strip for next season.
The Hunter Ports Newcastle Jets are giving the Club-s Members an exclusive opportunity to have their say in the design of the Jets- away strip for the 2013/14 A-League season.
Jets Members will be able to select their favourite design from three uniquely different options. The away strip with the most votes will be officially adopted by the Club for the 2013/14 season.
Members who vote for the winning away strip will also go into the draw to win the brand new 2013/14 away strip signed by the entire Newcastle Jets squad.
Newcastle Jets CEO Robbie Middleby said he was looking forward to seeing which away strip is selected by the Club-s Members.
“It-s great to be able to give our loyal Members the opportunity to have a say on what away strip their team will proudly wear during the 2013/14 A-League season,” Middleby said.
“I think we have three great designs for our Members to choose from and I'm looking forward to seeing what decision they make.”
Voting is open to Newcastle Jets Members only closes at 12pm on Friday, May 17th. CLICK HERE to cast your vote!
Option 1: Option 1 is a direct tribute to the rich football history of the Hunter region.
The strip adopts the City of Newcastle-s official colours of emerald green and cinnamon brown, which were also worn by KB United as the first Newcastle team to compete in the National Soccer League back in 1978.
The strip also takes inspiration from the away kit worn by Liverpool FC, former Club of Jets marquee striker Emile Heskey, during 1999/00 English Premier League season.
Option 2: Option 2 is a throwback to the formative years of the A-League competition when each club had a predominantly white away strip.
The strip features red and blue side panels to represent the Jets- home strip colours.
Option 3: Option 3 is a charcoal coloured strip inspired by Newcastle-s history as a proud coal-mining region. To this day, the Port of Newcastle remains the world-s largest coal-mining export harbour, with over 100 million tonnes exported annually.
The strip also features a red and blue sash, which enables the Jets- home strip colours to also be represented on the away strip.
