The Newcastle Jets and The University of Newcastle have initiated a partnership, in support of the Jets' upcoming international youth tours.
The University’s sponsorship will enable greater global experiences for the youth, as they are set to travel to Hong Kong for the Soccer Sevens on Wednesday.
Jets CEO, Lawrie Mckinna says the Newcastle Jets and their relationship with Newcastle University over the years has only strengthened; a majority of the players being Newcastle students.
"It's a perfect fit for the University and Newcastle Jets to be together," he said.
The participation of the Jets players in both the Hong Kong and China youth tours is set to attract a number of domestic and international students, by creating greater exposure for Newcastle, the University and the Jets.
The Jets are set to hold future Open Days in August in collaboration with Newcastle University.
"We're going to look to build this partnership down the track and be even stronger going into the future."
