FFA Cup Prematch Venue: The Premier Hotel

We are very pleased to announce on Wednesday 3rd August we will be trialling the Premier Hotel as a new pre-match venue for the first Newcastle United Jets FC FFA Cup fixture at Magic Park.

The Premier Hotel is located at 1 Brunker Road, Broadmeadow. It is located a short walk from Hunter Stadium and Magic Park and is one of the few venues in the area ideal for Jets supporters to meet for pre-match and away fixtures. The Premier also has a great selection of local and craft beers, a busy bistro and a large number of TV’s and bar areas throughout the venue.

Join us at the Premier Hotel in the Front Bar from 5pm for a few drinks, a pre-match meal or just catch up with mates. Supporters of all ages are welcome to join us, u81’s will need to be accompanied by an adult and are not allowed in gaming areas.

We will be departing the hotel after 645pm to walk down the road to Magic Park. After the game, feel free to head back to the Premier, which will be open until midnight. We look forward to hearing your feedback on the venue, and we hope for a great result in the FFA Cup.
