SQUADRON: Active Support Ticketing Update

The Squadron FSC has been liaising with the club after some issues were experienced with regards to ticketing for the new active area on the Southern Hill in Round 1.

There was some confusion about ticketing requirements to be able to access the active support area, unfortunately it wasn’t properly communicated that an unreserved General Admission ticket or membership wasn’t suitable (unlike the trial at the end of last season).

As the new Squadron bay now has a specific capacity, only a Squadron ticket or membership (which is a reserved GA ticket) will gain access to the active support area.
There are a number of ways to participate in active support for the 2016/17 season.


You can purchase a full season or 3 game Squadron membership. A membership represents a significant cost saving to purchasing tickets game to game. You can purchase your membership via this link https://membership.newcastlejets.com.au/
If you currently hold a Jets membership NOT in the Squadron bay, you can swap your membership for a gameday Squadron ticket. Simply visit the Members Services window on the left side of  the Western Stand Entrance.


You can pre-purchase an adult Squadron ticket by visiting this link http://www.ticketmaster.com.au/Newcastle-Jets-FC-tickets/artist/1055546?tm_link=tm_homeA_b_10004_4 and select the fixture you wish to purchase tickets for. Click “South General Admission” to bring up Southern Hill categories. Select “Home Active Support Area” to purchase a Squadron ticket.
If purchasing via the Ticketmaster mobile app select “Newcastle Jets Supporter Area”
Unfortunately Junior and Concession Squadron tickets can only be purchased at the stadium.


Squadron tickets can also be purchased at the dedicated ticket window at the Southern Entry gates. If you purchase a non Squadron ticket and wish to swap it, you can swap it for a Squadron ticket at this window also.

If you experience any issues with regards to ticketing or entry into the Squadron bay, please let us know either during the game or send us an email squadronfsc@gmail.com so we can raise it with the Jets.

Never Tear Us Apart

The Jetstream Review – Wayne Browns On Fire

Furns (@newyboys) is joined by David (@JeterPool) & Glen (@SufferJetsCity) to review the 1-1 draw between @NewcastleJetsFC & @AdelaideUnited at @MJStadium

After the opening question the guys discuss the prematch entertainment organised by the Jets sponsor Inspirations Paint before delving into the game itself, with an overview of the performance, stats and tactics, the players who shone and a few who struggled, some key points in the match as well as the injuries suffered by three of our players and the players who replaced them. We then wrapped up by going over some of the news that broke after we recorded the preview podcast last week.

Stay tuned after the outro music as we have bonus content!!! Dr Emma (@Synapse101) interviews Jets supporter Anthony after the match at MJ STadium to get some immediate postmatch thoughts on the performance and players. We also have the audio of the post match press conference with Jets Coach Mark Jones, thanks to Fox Sports.

Squadron Launch Email & Boycott Campaign

We are now officially launching the email and boycott campaign we recently proposed, and its an initiative that we hope the football fraternity can join with us and get behind. The reasons behind the campaign are listed here  https://www.newcastlefootball.net/home/2015/11/squadron-statement-time-to-hit-them-where-it-hurts/

We ask that you go to this website http://nmfb01.azurewebsites.net/ to fill in a form with your name and email address. This site will automatically email the Daily Telegraph calling for them to sack Rebecca Wilson and issue an apology, email 2GB to call for them to force Alan Jones to issue an on-air retraction and apology, and email 2GB sponsors to either pull their funding or lobby 2GB to force Jones to issue an on-air retraction. Simply select the entities you wish to email, read through the statement and hit send. Its that easy.

Any show or media outlet that hosts Rebecca Wilson and her toxic views also needs to be emailed separately to immediately drop her as a resource. Currently the two other media outlets we know of who have used Rebecca Wilson recently are:
SEN Radio Melbourne – enquiries@sen.com.au
Sky News (Sports Night program) –
Feel free to contact these email addresses to inform them of the current situation regarding Rebecca Wilson and that you will be boycotting them until she is dropped from their business.

We call on ALL A-League clubs to immediately blacklist News Limited publications and websites (Except FoxSports), end any advertising or sponsorship arrangements and refuse to deal with them until such times as they remove Rebecca Wilson from their employ and approach future articles regarding football in a fair, balanced and researched manner.

We also call for a total boycott of News Limited publications from football supporters. Dont buy their papers and dont click their links online. If we can cost them enough advertising money through decreased circulation and website clicks, they will have to change their ways to try to win the customers back they have lost.

Hopefully, with enough people sending these emails and boycotting their businesses, we will be able to force some real change and the Daily Telegraph, 2GB, Rebecca Wilson, Alan Jones and 2GB will remember next time to provide some balance in their reporting on football matters.

We will continue working with other supporters groups to directly lobby the FFA to come out immediately (and in future) to defend football supporters in response to anti-football media articles, for the treatment and engagement of all football supporters to improve and for the FFA to begin meeting with supporters clubs representatives to co-operatively rework the banning system to ensure procedural fairness and transparency.

We would ask that you share this article to as many football media personalities, actual journalists without anti-football agendas and your fellow football supporters as possible to spread the word and get this movement off the ground.

They will Never Tear Us Apart
