Newcastle Jets launch 2017/18 playing kit


The Jets have launched their playing kit for the upcoming 2017/18 Hyundai A-League season with the club’s new apparel partner, Viva Global.

The Jets donned their official strip for the first time during their clash with Sydney FC at Magic Park over the weekend – running out in the home design.

The kit pays homage to the quintessential football kit, taking a minimalist approach and staying true to the tradition of the Newcastle Jets.

Jets’ CEO, Lawrie McKinna said that the new playing strip was about making a statement, but more importantly about performance.

“Viva have worked extremely hard to provide us with a kit that will aid the performance of our players,” said McKinna,

“Through countless hours of research and testing, they’ve been able to deliver us one of the most advanced kits the club has seen – with a slim fit and ultra-lightweight material.”

“As for the design – I love it – we’ve had great feedback, from the players, the fans and the local football community.”

“Most importantly, the players like wearing it and that can only be a good thing,” said McKinna.

“They’re all really pleased with the cut and material of this latest product from Viva.”

On the new apparel partner, McKinna commended Viva for their work to date.

“The team at Viva have been nothing but class from start to finish and ultimately have delivered us a world-class product,” added McKinna.
