Coffs Harbour Set to Host A-League Match

June 9th, 2016

The A-League is coming to Coffs Harbour next year with Newcastle Jets today confirming they will play one home game of the 2016/17 season at Coffs Harbour’s International Stadium.

The Jets will host Melbourne City in Round 17 of the regular season at the Coffs Harbour C.EX Stadium, on Friday 27th January 2017.

It’s the first time the Jets will play a home game in regional NSW, and Coffs Harbour City Mayor Denise Knight was thrilled to partner with Northern NSW Football and North Coast Football in securing the fixture.

“We couldn’t be more excited! We as a community open our arms to have a competitive game between Melbourne [City] and Newcastle at CEX Stadium in the mighty Coffs Harbour. Go the Jets!”

Newcastle Jets Chief Executive David Eland said the club is proud to represent Northern NSW, which extends far beyond the Hunter region.

“The club strives to be recognised as the A-League club of northern NSW. Having the first fully fledged A-League game in Coffs Harbour, right in the middle of northern NSW, makes absolute sense, not to mention that it’s the back end of the January school holidays.”

NCF President Michael Lamont said the Zone is proud to host such an event, and thanked everyone involved for their hard work behind the scenes to organise the fixture.

“It is great, it is a first for Coffs Harbour, to have an A-League competition game. A special thanks to Coffs Council, North Coast Football and Northern NSW Football for their involvement in the organisation so far.”
