Northern NSW Football and Newcastle Jets team up on Australia Cup game day activities

July 18th, 2022

Clubs across northern NSW are invited to participate in Australia Cup game day activities when Newcastle Jets play Adelaide United on 30 July.

Club’s MiniRoos teams can join a pre-game little legends lap, run out as team mascots, form a guard of honour or play half-time (on pitch) matches.

Northern NSW Football’s Community Football Manager, Ross Hicks said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for clubs to reward their MiniRoos kids and celebrate their club in front of our football community.

We would love to see clubs in their playing strips promoting who they are and getting involved in this important Round of 32 match.”

Clubs are encouraged to register their preferences for game day activities as places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
