About us

The history of the Newcastle Jets FC is inseparable from the history of football in the Hunter Region.

The environment in which football was established in Newcastle and the Hunter, with all its triumphs and failures, has created a proud history, a foundation and a legacy upon which the club has been created.

There are many things to celebrate about football in the Hunter region. There are many proud and long standing clubs playing in our state leagues. Many great players have been formed in the Hunter: Ray Baartz and Col Curren remain living legends in our city and Craig Johnston created a generation of Liverpool fans (two generations if you count their kids!).

Yet football people in the region have also had their fair share of obstacles and disappointments which meant that football in the region has never fully reached its potential.

One thing is certain, the history of football in the region has created a love for good quality football, a desire to watch a team that will give everything they’ve got and a hope to see a strong club from the region aiming for glory.

These are the elements that the Newcastle Jets Football Club have been pulling together in the brave new world of the Hyundai A-League. The Jets aim to make the people of the Hunter Region feel part of and proud of their club.
