A-League followers’ protests on the promoting of the grand closing to Sydney began at McDonald Jones Stadium on Friday night time, with Newcastle’s lively supporters group leaving the bottom 20 minutes into the Jets’ conflict with Brisbane Roar.
The “Terrace Novacastria” group, who had stood being a banner saying “followers>$$”, headed for exit gates with the rating at 0-0 after 20 minutes.
The protest, set to be repeated at venues across the competitors this weekend, got here after this week’s announcement the Australian Skilled Leagues had bought A-League males’s and girls’s grand finals, in addition to E-League deciders, to the NSW authorities for subsequent three years for round $20 million.
Historically, the highest-ranked workforce earns grand closing internet hosting rights.
Earlier, Jets midfielder Angus Thurgate got here near giving the Jets the lead with a fourth-minute shot that hit the crossbar.
