The Brisbane Jets are an Australian A-League club formed through a joint venture between former Brisbane Bombers and Western Corridor consortiums. Based out of Ipswich in Queensland and playing their home games at Lang Park stadium. Furthermore, plans exist to expand into National Rugby League competition, wherein a proposed 20,000 seat stadium in North Ipswich would serve as its home ground.
The name, logo and colours of our club are inspired by the F/A-18 Hornet fighter aircraft from RAAF Base Williamtown in Sydney. Three aircraft from this fleet appear within our logo designed by local artist in collaboration with us to form our emblem.
The club prides itself on giving back to the community. Each year it hosts various community events, reaching out to communities throughout regional NSW. Furthermore, it partners with the Heart Foundation – featuring their iconic Happy Heart Mascot with vital messages regarding heart health – while welcoming Vietnam veterans each home game for coin toss and ground announcements.
Greater Bank goes beyond sponsorship of the Jets by supporting Jets:PLAY. This initiative brings players directly into local communities for free coaching clinics and friendly matches against local teams. Greater Bank also organises pre-season tours of the Jets across regional NSW which gives fans who can’t afford tickets an opportunity to experience them first hand.
This new group will meet at least three times per season to address issues and offer practical suggestions to the Club. Members were chosen following an intensive selection process which involved expressions of interest, surveys and interviews – we look forward to welcoming our newest Fan Council Members!
As the National Rugby League considers expansion options in Queensland, one consortium offers an innovative blueprint for growth: Nick Livermore has spent thousands pushing forward their bid over the past decade, but while Redcliffe Dolphins and Brisbane Firehawks may boast greater cash reserves. However, Jets are supported by local, state, and federal governments – unlike their competition.
After starting their $12 million fundraising drive, the Jets hope to demonstrate to NRL Chief Executive Peter V’landys they possess enough financial muscle for inclusion as the 17th team of the competition. He will hold formal meetings with them all this week.
The Jets have developed an ambitious expansion plan, targeting families while simultaneously expanding the Brisbane Rugby League feeder teams and player numbers in the region. Furthermore, dual membership with Broncos would enhance their catchment area as this would satisfy NRL requirements for new teams without draining away fan bases of existing clubs.
