Jets Miss Record Crowd But Score With Fans Generosity

November 11th, 2015

 

Last weekend the Newcastle Jets hosted their first home game for the 2015.16 Westfield W-League season at Magic Park, with the Round 4 clash against the Western Sydney Wanderers.

Northern NSW Football set out to achieve a record standalone attendance for the match and eclipse the previous record of 3,084, from Round 3 of the 2014.15 season between Western Sydney Wanderers and Sydney FC at Marconi Stadium.

The crowd attendance on the day was 1,724 and whilst this didn’t beat the existing record, it put the Jets women into the top three spot, just missing out on second place, by 29 spectators.

The day also provided the opportunity to raise funds for Autism Spectrum Australia, a cause that is shared between the Jets men’s and women’s sides, with spectators invited to make a gold coin donation on entry to Magic Park.

The overall amount that was raised on the day came to $2,865.00.

With a disability that affects one in 100 Australians; Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) is Australia’s leading service provider for autism and other disabilities. Their services provide school programs, information and advice, diagnostic assessments, behaviour support, parent and family support, and adult programs.
