Jets prepare for Phoenix and White Ribbon


The Newcastle Jets host the Wellington Phoenix at Hunter Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Newcastle Jets host the Wellington Phoenix on Sunday afternoon, so grab your family and friends and get along to the Round 7 clash at Hunter Stadium.

The gates open at 2pm with the game kicking off at 3pm and tickets are available at the gate for anyone yet to purchase.

A reminder the Newcastle Jets are showing their support for White Ribbon Day at the game, which is an organisation that works to prevent male violence against women.

There will be a number of events happening, both on field and off, at the stadium on Sunday, and by attending the game, you have the chance not only support a great cause but also to get up close with some of the players on the McDonalds Family Hill before kick-off.

Hunter Venues have also installed a huge White Ribbon on the front of Hunter Stadium and their staff will be selling white ribbons (they are just $2) around the ground on game day.

Email us your photo of you with your White Ribbon or with the big White Ribbon out the front of the stadium and the best photos we receive will be posted on our Facebook. Send to communications@huntersportsgroup.com or Tweet us.

Both teams will finalise their starting eleven 90 minutes prior to kick off.
