As the Socceroos settle into their Brazilian base, the FFA has extended an invite to 3000 local fans to get up close with their visitors from down-under.
Saturday’s training session at the Aussies’ new base the Arena Unimed Sicoob will be an open, ticketed event for 3000 locals from Espirito Santo in a show of thanks for the hospitality the team has received since arriving on Thursday.
With the Socceroos based in Espirito Santo’s capital Vitoria, there’s been much buzz over the visitors from Australia, who were the first to arrive in the country ahead of the World Cup.
Now there’s a chance to get to know the likes of Tim Cahill, Mark Milligan and Matt Spiranovic a little better.
Around 3000 lucky locals have won free tickets to the event through the state government of Espirito Santo and Football Espirito Santo as the Socceroos and FIFA strive to include the fans in the 2104 FIFA World Cup experience.
Coach Ange Postecoglou will put his Socceroos through another tough workout following the squad’s first session on Brazilian soil on Friday as the opening game of the World Cup draws ever closer.
