Australian Footballer of the year Samantha Kerr is in the Southwest this week.
Samantha, who plays for Perth Glory, will join her teammates in a match against Canberra United on Saturday at Hay Park.
Mayor Gary Brennan said the event was a fantastic opportunity for Bunbury.
“For Bunbury to be given the opportunity to host such a high-profile sporting event shows that our great city is being recognised as an iconic destination,” Mr Brennan said.
“The benefits this event will bring to Bunbury and the Bunbury-Geographe region are huge. Not just economically or from a tourism standpoint – sport helps to bring the community together.”
On Friday players will visit the Dolphin Discovery Centre and Bunbury Wildlife Park, followed by a public signing session from 11am at Hay Park South.
Tickets to the game are available from the Perth Glory website www.perthglory.com.au
