Play On the Pitch During Jets Matches!

MiniRoos at the Jets

Northern NSW Football club teams playing U8s and U9s in 2020 and 2021 have the opportunity to become MiniRoos Half-time Heroes at Newcastle Jets home games! Clubs can bring along players to participate in a small-sided MiniRoos football game during the halftime break.

Clubs participating in the MiniRoos Halftime Heroes will receive:

  • 2 tickets per player (1 for the player and 1 for a parent)
  • 2 tickets for accompanying coaches
  • 10 minutes playing time on the field at half-time at either McDonald Jones Stadium or No 2 Sportsground, Newcastle.

* Unfortunately due to COVID-19 we are unable to offer mascot and stadium tour opportunities at this time.

Please note that due to the high number of Expressions of Interest that we receive, filling out an Expression of Interest as below does not guarantee the club the opportunity to participate in Halftime Hero activations.
