Australian builder McDonald Jones Homes has inked a five-year deal to become the new naming rights sponsor of Newcastle’s Hunter Stadium.
Home to A-League club Newcastle Jets and NRL outfit Newcastle Knights, the stadium will be known as the McDonald Jones Stadium.
The value of the deal has not been disclosed, citing contract confidentiality with Venues NSW. Furthermore, the company also has the first option to renew its deal.
The stadium had not had a naming rights sponsor since 2011 when Energy Australia held the venue’s naming rights.
Venues NSW chairman John Quayle said having a local company take up the naming rights sponsorship was a great outcome.
“This sponsorship, I believe, is also a sign of the positive future this sporting precinct has for Newcastle and the Hunter,” Quayle is quoted in the Newcastle Herald.
