Caltex Socceroos stars will be out amongst the fans in Sydney today (Tuesday) as anticipation for Saturday night’s Dodoni Series opener against Greece heats up.
The likes of Mat Ryan, Tom Rogic, Trent Sainsbury, Milos Degenek and Alex Gersbach will be at two separate events in Sydney to meet fans, sign autographs and pose for photos.
The first will be held at Tag Heuer in Pitt St Mall with Ryan, Rogic and Sainsbury to be joined by goalkeeper Mark Birighitti.
As well as signing autographs and posing for photos, the Socceroos quartet will also take part in a speed and accuracy challenge with the fans, with the aim to score a goal with the fastest recorded kick.
Meanwhile, at TAB at World Square, Gersbach, Degenek, Josh Risdon and Jason Geria will be a part of a special Soccer Pong game.
Lucky fans will get to team up with a Caltex Socceroos star, with the aim to try and kick the ball into the opposing team’s tub, and every time a ball goes into the tub, that tub gets taken away.
Whichever team gets the most balls into the tubs will win.
So don’t miss these two great chances to get up close and personal with some of your Socceroo favourites.
Both events will be run from 4-6pm today (Tues).
If you can’t get to any of those events don’t worry as you can tune into the Caltex Australia Facebook Page for a Live Q&A with skipper Mile Jedinak, Robbie Kruse, Mark Milligan and Aaron Mooy.
Don’t forget the Caltex Socceroos Fan Day on Thursday at Leichhardt Oval, with the side to hold an open training session before getting around to meet the fans.
Gates at Leichhardt Oval open from 4pm.
