Children aged 16 and under accompanied by an adult can attend the Newcastle Jets v Perth Glory A-League match for free, thanks to the northern New South Wales football community.
North Coast Football, Football Far North Coast and Northern New South Wales Football have combined to provide tickets for any child aged 16 and under, playing or non-playing, to attend the match at 7 pm on Tuesday, 13 April 2021, if an adult accompanies them with a general admission ticket.
The northern NSW football community applauds the Newcastle Jets and Coffs Harbour City Council for supporting its plan to ensure as many children as possible get the chance to see the match.
“It’s an opportunity for our current players to be inspired and for non-players to see what the world game is all about,” said Andrew Woodward, General Manager of the Coffs Harbour based North Coast Football.
“Over $4 million in football talent will be on the pitch at Coffs Stadium. That’s not something we see every day. We want as many people as possible to see it.
“Football already is the biggest sport on the north coast and continuing to grow. Bringing events like the Jets v Glory match will help accelerate that growth.
“Football on the north coast is having a bumper 12 months with two Jets’ visits – the upcoming match against Perth Glory and Brisbane Roar back in December.
“Player registrations across northern NSW are up, meaning we will have our biggest year yet in terms of player and team numbers.
“The year will end on a high with the opening of three new football pitches and associated facilities at Coffs Sport and Leisure Park, including two all-weather, year-round football pitches, thanks to $12.5 million in funding from state and local government.
“We’re also excited that the North Coast Football National Premier League Youth Under 15’s and 16’s will play each other in the curtain-raiser to the match. This match will be a great experience and exposure for the girls and boys,” Mr Woodward said.
One adult general admission ticket’s purchase entitles the buyer to two complimentary tickets for children aged 16 and under.
