In the 2008 A-League Grand Final, the Newcastle Jets prevailed over their opponents, the Central Coast Mariners, by a score of 1-0 to claim their first ever championship in the competition. First participating in the AFC Champions League in 2009, Newcastle advanced all the way to the round of 16 in that competition.

After the club’s owner, Nathan Tinkler, placed the organization into voluntary administration in May of 2015, the license of Newcastle Football Club was withdrawn by the FFA.
