The nib Newcastle Knights are saddened but agree with the NRL’s decision to suspend the 2020 season, effective immediately.
The health, safety and wellbeing of our players, staff, members and fans is always the top priority in the wake of the COVID-19 virus threat.
We are in the process of gathering more information on what the competition may look like when we can resume play.
But until that time, we want to assure our members, fans and sponsors that we will be doing everything we can to make sure they are ready to go once the competition resumes.
Our players want to play. They love the game and they wanted to continue.
Like many businesses and sporting organisations, we face a challenge.
This pandemic is bigger than sport. This is something society is fighting.
No crowd. His try. Final message to supporters
This is a trying time for our country. We will fight this together and come out the other side.
We want to thank all of our supporters for their kind messages during this period. We will endeavour to keep you updated as we have more information.
We also want to take this time to thank our sponsors for their enduring and unwavering support. Without the likes of our Principal Sponsor nib, and fellow sponsors McDonald Jones Homes, Mining NSW, O’Neills, Red Energy, McDonalds, Awabakal, Mine Super, Bryden’s Lawyers, Kelly Trotter Motor Group, Coca-Cola, Tooheys, Benedict Recycling, Westfield Kotara, Allara Learning, University of Newcastle, Toshiba, MusclePharm, NBN, Triple M, Newcastle Herald, New FM/2HD, oOh!media, Cypress Lakes, Bauerfeind, and 2NURFM, not to mention our myriad of Club 17 and corporate hospitality partners, the challenges we face right now would be all the more daunting.
In times of adversity, Knights supporters show their best self.
You are resilient people. Our players and staff are too.
We hope our opening two performances made you proud and we can promise you, this is only the beginning.
We are united in this and appreciate your patience and understanding.
