Newcastle Jets together with Northern New South Wales Football (NNSWF) are pleased to advise that Wednesday’s friendly between Scott Miller’s Jets and Damian Zane’s PlayStation ® 4 National Premier League Northern NSW Select squad will be streamed live by BarTV Sports.
The Jets and NNSWF have reached an agreement to split the cost of the live stream to enable the friendly fixture to reach as many interested football fans locally, nationally and internationally as possible.
While the Jets and NNSWF certainly encourage as many supporters as possible to make the journey to Magic Park in Broadmeadow to catch the game live at the ground given all gate profits will be donated to Life Without Barriers, fans unable to get to the venue will be able to log on to both www.newcastlejets.com.au and www.northernnswfootball.com.au from 7pm to catch all the action live.
Newcastle Jets Chief Executive Officer, Mr Lawrie McKinna, said that the Jets will also be making moves over the coming days to provide the club’s owners, Ledman Group, with match information and embed codes to promote the game through their vast networks in China.
“When BarTV Sports live streamed our youth team’s 5-0 win over Shandong Luneng’s U19 at Magic Park in June the game was shared through the Ledman Group network in China,” McKinna explained.
“We will be taking the same approach with Wednesday’s friendly and hopefully this results in increased exposure for the Jets, Northern NSW Football, the local PS4 National Premier League clubs, and most importantly the many talented players from both teams that will be on display,” he said.
NNSWF Chief Executive Officer, Mr David Eland, said that his organisation is pleased to be partnering with the Jets for the live stream to ensure that the game between the PS4 NPL Northern NSW Select side and the federation’s Hyundai A-League club can be viewed far and wide.
“PS4 NPL Northern New South Wales matches are streamed live weekly by BarTV Sports, and from their analytics we understand that viewers log on to the games from throughout the region and around Australia,” Eland said.
“It is great that together we will be able to provide a live stream so that fans who may not physically be able to attend the match can still engage with what we hope will become an annual event again,” he said.
