Football Federation Australia (FFA) have released the National Youth League 2012/13 Season Draw and the Newcastle Jets will open their season against the Central Coast Mariners at Tuggerah on October 21.

The fifth season of Australia-s premier under 21-s competition will again feature ten teams including Adelaide United, Australian Institute of Sport, Brisbane Roar, Central Coast Mariners, Melbourne Heart, Melbourne Victory, Newcastle Jets, Perth Glory, Sydney FC and newcomers Western Sydney Wanderers FC.

The National Youth League 2012/13 season, which kicks off on 20 October, will see a full home and away season played over 18 Rounds.

The National Youth League-s continued success has seen an ever increasing number of players progressing to the Hyundai A-League and other international domestic leagues.

As another level to FFA-s National Strategic Framework, the National Youth League puts a major focus on the development of players to progress seamlessly from to the Hyundai A-League and Australian national teams.
