Match Day Sponsor
For the fifth year, the Knights partner with NSW Mining to celebrate the mining industry’s contribution to the Hunter region.
The team will proudly don the hi-vis jersey at the annual Voice for Mining Family Day and the event will raise money for the region’s Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.
This year the NSW Minerals Council will also sponsor a ‘High Ball Challenge’ at half time to raise money for the helicopter service and for every ball caught, $100 will be donated.
