The Newcastle Knights special edition hi-viz NSW Mining jersey is available to purchase at the Hunter Sports Superstore, The Locker Room at Wests Mayfield and online now!
The Newcastle Knights has launched the hi-viz jersey as part of a new two-year partnership with the NSW Minerals Council, representing the thousands of miners that are making an important contribution to their communities and the state’s economy.
The jersey demonstrates the strong connection between miners and the Knights and the club’s support for the 12,000 mine workers and their families who live in the Hunter and love their footy.
“The Knights have a proud history of supporting mining in the Hunter. People are already getting behind this jersey with several hundred pre-sold following its release," Newcastle Knights CEO Matt Gidley said.
"Now that it’s available in store, people can cheer for the Hunter’s two great teams - the Knights and our miners,” he added.
“This new jersey will resonate with thousands of local miners and their families who work in the mining industry, in the Hunter and in Sydney," NSW Minerals Council CEO Stephen Galilee said.
"We can’t wait to see the boys playing in this new strip and we’ll be announcing more details about when that will be in the coming weeks.
"The Newcastle Knights will run onto the field in the hi-viz jersey at one home game and one game in Sydney in 2014 and 2015," he said.
So, this year, when fans and mine workers wear hi-viz gear to the ground to support Hunter miners, they’ll also be wearing their team’s colours for the day.
Now Members and supporters can show their support by wearing their very own hi-viz Knights jersey at games throughout the season.
