Asian Cup Ambassador Alessandro Del Piero will make a special appearance at an interactive Football Fan Park at iconic Circular Quay on Saturday ahead of Sydney’s Australia Day Semi-final of the biggest football tournament ever to be staged in Australia.
Del Piero will be available to the media and public to talk about the excitement of the 2015 AFC Asian Cup which culminates in the Final at Stadium Australia on January 31, after 32 games, across 23 days in five cities.
The dome-shaped Football Fan Park, which has featured in all five host cities before and/or during the tournament, offers fans the chance to engage with the AFC Asian Cup through a range of informative, entertaining and competitive activities.
Fans can have their photos taken interactively with their favourite national team, have their faces digitally painted in their team’s colours, score the winning goal in the virtual penalty shootout and produce their best goal celebrations in the Score and Roar studio.
The Football Fan Park will move from Customs House today to Parramatta’s Centenary Square from January 27-31.
The Fan Parks are no longer operating in Brisbane, Canberra or Melbourne, but will continue to operate at Honeysuckle in Newcastle until their last match of the tournament on January 30.
