Jets owner Nathan Tinkler’s Castle Quarry Products replaces his Hunter Ports on the front of the jersey. CQP is a sandmining operation at Fullerton Cove and is a division of Buildev.
NIB has remained as sleeve sponsor.
Jets commercial manager Mark Duffield-Thomas said negotiations with Aurizon, last season’s shorts sponsor, and other potential backers were continuing.
WesTrac has not renewed its sponsorship on the back of the playing shirt.
NIB, WesTrac and Aurizon had duel sponsorships with Hunter Sports Group when it owned the Jets and Knights.
Middleby said sponsorship and corporate sales were areas A-League clubs across the board were working hard to improve.

“Membership prices are the same as last year and easily the most affordable in the A-League,” Middleby said.
Meanwhile, Josh Brillante has passed a medical and is expected to complete his move to Italian club Fiorentina in the next two days.
