F3 Derby Fixture Update

Following ongoing consultation between the Australian Professional Leagues (APL), Venues NSW, Newcastle Jets and the Central Coast Mariners, the decision has been made to move the upcoming F3 derby between Newcastle Jets and the Central Coast Mariners to Industree Group Stadium, Gosford.

It was agreed today between all parties to proactively move the fixture on Saturday 25 November due to ongoing turf renovation following a recent Supercross event at McDonald Jones Stadium.

Newcastle Jets Executive Chairman Shane Mattiske said.

“This change provides confidence that next weekend’s Derby will be played on a surface that is in great condition.  Importantly – our members still get two home F3 Derby games and have reciprocal rights to attend the Gosford match as part of your Jets membership.

Whilst this is a change that we hadn’t anticipated, I know our players are keen to take on the Mariners and they will want all of you there to back them up as we take the first step in bringing home the F3 derby trophy.”
