The Newcastle Jets have unveiled their new kit including a return of the iconic gold jersey.
Over recent years, the club became famous for its signature blue-and-red colours, similar to that of the Newcastle Knights.
However, for the first time in 10 years the Jets are returning to their golden roots for the 2021/2020 A-League season because its believed 'some of their greatest moments have come in gold.'
Executive Chairman Shane Mattiske believes the connection to the club's heritage will further strengthen the bond with new players and those of the past.
“While the Club is moving forward into a new era in many ways, we are determined to reconnect with our origins and uphold the history of football in the region.
“It was a clear decision for the Club to return to wearing gold and it is a notion we know many supporters and former players strongly support.
Our return to gold marks the perfect time for the Club to unite with another local icon, Port of Newcastle, our city’s golden port," he said in a statement.
For the next three upcoming seasons, Port of Newcastle’s gold and navy logo will be worn by players on the front of jersey position for the A-League and FFA Cup campaigns.
The strips are not the only new identity the squad will don this season.
New coach Arthur Papas has spent the pre-season gaining an array of signatures to Newcastle.
The new-look squad is shaping up to be highly competitive and ready to mark their position in the A-League for a new golden era.
