Let’s Keep The Jets Flying!
Dear Newtown Jets supporter,
This is a terrible time for our nation and the entire world.
It also represents a dire challenge to the continued existence of the Newtown Rugby League Football Club.
Our competition, Canterbury Cup NSW has been cancelled and there will not be any further games played at all in 2020. This is especially disappointing given our great start. Our players put in an enormous pre-season which was reflected in our Round 1 performance.
The season’s cancellation represents a total wipe-out of the club’s main source of income, revenue from home games played at Henson Park. This enormous financial dislocation represents a genuine threat to the Newtown club’s ability to survive into the future.
Our club is committed to meeting its obligations to our players, suppliers and staff. Our fixed liabilities mostly occur at the beginning of the season and are substantial.
We are currently doing everything we can to minimise expenditure and sincerely thank our loyal sponsors for sticking with us, but now more than ever we need our members, supporters and friends to do the same to help our club survive and ensure we return in 2021!
We call upon Newtown supporters everywhere to contribute $100 to become a Keep The Jets Flying member. You will receive a unique package of memorabilia that will last a lifetime, one that will enable you to relive one of the greatest years in our club’s history. You might not be able to watch games this year but you can relive the glory of last season with this package. JOIN HERE.
The Keep The Jets Flying package includes: –
- WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS streaming access containing the feel-good rugby league story of the year. The 55 minute documentary produced by Jason Pritchard and Adam Grozdanic, features interviews with Newtown Jets identities such as Greg Matterson, Scott Sorensen and Billy Magoulias as they recall those amazing moments that ended in Premiership and Championship glory.
- A specially-designed Keep the Jets Flying digital print with your name and membership number.
- An iconic Newtown Jets 2019 Premiers and Champions pdf poster.
- Newtown RLFC 2020 Membership
Royal Blue Legends Club, Bluebags Season Pass & Family members will automatically receive the package as part of your membership. All other 2020 members will receive the Keep The Jets Flying Digital Print and be eligible for the whole package by contributing the balance between $100 and your existing membership.
We will also continue to roll out exclusive offers to all our members throughout the year, so get on board!
We recognise not everyone can afford to assist financially during these extremely challenging times but, you can help by encouraging your mates who can to join us.
Our best wishes to you and your family members; stay safe.
Yours in the Royal Blue,

Newtown Jets respect and honour the Traditional Custodians of the Land and pay our respects to their Elders past and present. We acknowledge the stories, traditions and living cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples on the lands we meet, gather and play on and that the land area encompassing Henson Park traditionally belonged to the Gadigal people of the Eora nation.
