Perth football fans will be able to get up close and personal with their Socceroos heroes Tim Cahill, Mathew Leckie and Massimo Luongo at the Socceroos Fan Day on Tuesday 1 September at nib Stadium.
The Socceroos will be in Perth for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Bangladesh on Thursday 3 September but will take time out of the preparations to spend time with the fans after a late afternoon training session at nib Stadium.
“Our Fan Day is an important part of the build up to our home matches as it gives fans a chance to get behind the team and feel part of the Socceroos and the players an opportunity to feel the home town support,” Postecoglou said.
“The Socceroos have played matches all over Australia in the last 12 months and we are excited to be heading to Perth for the first time in 10 years. Our Fan Day is a great chance for them to get a photo and autograph as we all get ready for the match against Bangladesh on Thursday night.”
The Socceroos Fan Day starts at 3pm with merchandise giveaways and activities for early arriving fans (inflatable football pitch, DJ, photo booth, face painters and balloon artists) before the Socceroos start training at 4pm.
Following training, Socceroos players will sign autographs for the fans, who will also hear from Coach Ange Postecoglou and players as they prepare to take on Bangladesh in a World Cup Qualifier on Thursday night.
