Thailand fans get to see Australian stars 'up close'

The AFC Asian Cup 2007 pre-promotion in Thailand will peak on 5 July with a ‘Fans Meet the Stars’ LIVE session at Sports Revolution, Siam Centre. The one-day event, jointly organised by Nike Thailand and AFC, allows fans to get up close with Socceroos' Mark Bresciano (F.C. Parma, Italy) and Brett Emerton (Blackburn Rovers, England) as well as local favourites Teerathep Winothai (BEC Tero Sasana, Thailand) and Suchao Nutnum (TOT FC, Thailand).

"We are delighted to be associated with the AFC Asian Cup which brings together the best 16 teams from around the continent and is followed closely by football fans everywhere," a Nike representative said. "It is also great that Australian stars will be playing their group matches in Thailand. This will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for many local spectators to see the likes of Mark Viduka, Harry Kewell and Brett Emerton up close."
