Current season

The Newcastle Jets FC, also known as the Newcastle Jets Women, is an Australian football (soccer) team. Founded in 2008, it is the affiliated women's team of Newcastle Jets. The team competes in the country's National Women's Football competition, the W-League, under licence from Football Federation Australia.



Formed in 2008, following the Australian women's national soccer team's most successful experience at a FIFA Women's World Cup and the call for the establishment of a professional women's league, the W-League was initially composed of eight teams: Adelaide United, Brisbane Roar, Central Coast Mariners, Melbourne Victory, Newcastle Jets, Perth Glory, and Sydney FC.[1] Seven of the eight teams were affiliated with men's Hyundai A-League clubs, and shared their names and colours to promote their brands. The eighth club was the Canberra-based Canberra United.[2] Naming rights were secured by Westfield, a company co-founded by Frank Lowy. [3]

Wanderers Oval grandstand

The Newcastle Jets play their home matches at Newcastle International Sports Centre also known as Mcdonald Jones Stadium and occasionally at No.2 Sportsground in Newcastle. Before playing at the latter two venues the team played home matches at Wanderers Oval, commonly known as Magic Park, located in Broadmeadow, a suburb of Newcastle, New South Wales. The stadium features 489 grandstand seats and additional bench seating around the field for a total capacity of 3,500.[4] The pitch surface is grass.[5] It is also the home field for NPL Northern NSW club Broadmeadow Magic FC and occasionally the men's Newcastle Jets A-League team. However after a successful attempt in 2017-18 to play some of the teams home matches before the Men's games as Double Headers the club announced in September 2017 that the upcoming season would consist of 4 Double Headers with the Men's at Mcdonald Jones Home Stadium and the sole other home game being played at the No.2 Sportsground in Newcastle West which was also unveiled as the training ground for the W League and as a new home ground for the National Youth League sides as part of a partnership with Newcastle City Council.[6]
