I'm glad you enjoyed your time at McDonald Jones stadium watching the Newcastle Knights. Unfortunately that sun can be fairly strong in the afternoons but we hope to see you back sometime!

Was invited to watch Newcastle Knights in corporate box. Fantastic view of the game. The food was excellent. So much better than general admission. Considering option of getting my own box next season

We were in the Andrew Johns stand and felt very close to the action but there was a good vantage point from every seat in the stadium. The stadium still has a family-friendly hill that the "big city" stadiums lack which is nice to see....More
