Newcastle Jets owner Tinkler donating $5k for every goal scored

Newcastle Jets owner Nathan Tinkler will donate $5000 for every goal scored in tonight's Qantas Challenge exhibition match with MLS club LA Galaxy.

The racing and mining magnate has already been a savior for the Jets since he took over about nine weeks ago, pumping plenty of money into the club and keeping them safe from extinction.

EnergyAustralia Stadium will be packed out for the event and Tinkler's generosity is sure to see plenty of goals scored. Hopefully for the fans, Galaxy star David Beckham can bend one just as he did against Sydney FC back in 2007.
