HSG today announced Hunter Ports is the Principal Partner and front of jersey sponsor for both the Newcastle Jets and Knights for their upcoming seasons.
The two-year sponsorship while generating exposure on the front of both Jets A-League and Youth League jerseys as well as Knights' NRL and NYC teams, will also involve a substantial investment in community and youth programmes and events.
Hunter Ports Chairman Mr Nathan Tinkler confirmed the decision to support both these Newcastle icons was about community participation and to ensure the Hunter continued to grow as a commercial and sporting destination.
"It is an exciting time for Hunter Ports to join forces with other national and international brands to ensure Newcastle is a better place for us to live and most importantly bring up our families who can now enjoy international quality sport all year round," he said.
"I am particularly enthusiastic about our community programmes that will create elite sporting and career pathways and our community engagement that will ensure both the Jets and the Knights are valuable members and contributors to the Hunter community. With this investment we are supporting the Hunter Sports Group strategy of making sport affordable and accessible for the families of the Hunter.
