The Caltex Socceroos Fan Day has been a popular part of the team’s community engagement before matches all over Australia with the likes of players signing autographs for fans at the end of the one hour training session.
Fan attending the Socceroos Fan Day will also be able to take part in a host of activities from 3pm with merchandise and poster giveaways for fans before the team starts its training session at 4pm.
