Newcastle Breakers FC are a defunct Australian football (soccer) club. Formed out of elements of the Newcastle Austral club,[1] they participated in the National Soccer League from season 1991/1992, until their dissolution in 1999/2000.[2] The club fared poorly on the field in its nine seasons in the national league, failing to reach the finals at every attempt; the club's demise led to the creation of Newcastle United FC (later known as Newcastle Jets).[3][4]
