The new A-League season is almost upon us, and excitement is building ahead of the Newcastle Jets opening game against Sydney FC at Allianz Stadium on Friday 11th October. A number of supporters have enquired about the availability of coaches for this season, so The Squadron Football Supporters Club has booked a coach service to Sydney for the 11th October for any supporters who want to make the trip down the F3 and help pack out the away bays.
Bookings are now open for the Round 1 fixture against Sydney FC at Allianz Stadium on Friday 11th October 2013. Kick-off is at 7:30pm. You can purchase your tickets by calling Sid Foggs on 4928 1088 Mon – Fri 9am – 5pm and Sat 9am – 12pm. You can also purchase in person at Sid Foggs Travel, Gallery Level at Stockland Jesmond.
Coaches will depart from Hunter Stadium car park for Sydney at 4pm and then will depart 20 minutes after fulltime for the return trip to Newcastle. This service is for all Jets supporters and especially for families and younger supporters who want to attend an away game but don’t wish to travel by public transport and want a direct service to the stadium.
Prices for this trip will be $25 per seat or a special family price of $90 (two adults and two children or one adult and three children). Those paying by credit card will attract a 2% non-refundable fee. We have made the costs cheaper and simpler than last season so we hope this makes it more affordable for supporters.
These prices are for return coach travel only and do not include a match ticket. All patrons are strongly advised to purchase their match tickets prior to booking on the coach. Please be advised that smoking and alcohol will not be permitted on board Sid Foggs coaches.
A minimum number of bookings are required to ensure each service goes ahead. Those wishing to use this coach service are urged to purchase their tickets as soon as possible. A decision will be made by 12pm Wednesday October 9th as to whether the minimum number of seats have been sold. If the service is cancelled, customers will be notified and purchases will be refunded (except credit card fees).
Patronage for this service will determine whether there is sufficient demand for future NSW away trips for games against Wanderers and the Mariners. A portion of sales after a completed service will be donated to The Squadron FSC to go towards tifo production costs (large scale displays, flags and poles, banners, drums and megaphones, etc)
The coach service is booked by The Squadron on behalf of all Newcastle Jets supporters with Sid Foggs Coaches. Hunter Sports Group/Newcastle Jets FC have no involvement aside from promoting the service to its Members. Any enquiries for these coach services need to be directed to Sid Foggs Coaches on the above number.
