BARTERCARD will sponsor the Newcastle Jets next season, the club announced on Tuesday.
Jets chief executive Lawrie McKinna said the club was thrilled to have added Bartercard to its partner family.
“Bartercard has a long history of partnering with national sporting franchises and currently enjoys links with clubs in Super Rugby, the NRL and the AFL,” McKinna said.
“However our partnership with Bartercard is unique to the Hyundai A-League and that is something we can be proud of.”
Bartercard franchise manager Guy Ashford said the cashless business network was proud to give back to a club like the Jets.
“This partnership fulfils our social mission of facilitating growth, development and improvement within the local community,” Mr Ashford said.
The announcement comes a day after Ernie Merrick officially began his tenure as Jets coach with a training session
