SATURDAY afternoon’s blockbuster Hyundai A-League clash between the Newcastle Jets and Sydney FC will have a Mid North Coast flavour.
Ninety-five players from Football Mid North Coast’s Skills Acquisition Program will take to the field at McDonald Jones Stadium and gather around the centre circle before kick-off.
They will then hold a Jets banner up the top the Andrew Johns Stand throughout the game.
FMNC general manager Bruce Potter said the Fox Sports commentator Andy Harper would mention the Port Macquarie contingent throughout the coverage.
“It’s an opportunity for them to see something special and a match that sees one versus two,” he said.
In total, Port Macquarie will be represented by 350 people which includes FMNC members, players and families.
The match kicks off at 5.35pm and will be broadcast live on Fox Sports channel 501.
