Soccer fanatics will have the chance to get up close and personal with two elite Italian teams before they face off in Perth, with the proceeds from the tickets going towards helping sick kids in WA.

Italian powerhouses AC Milan and AS Roma will train at HBF Park on May 30 ahead of their blockbuster match the next day at Optus Stadium.

And keen fans will be able to watch the back-to-back sessions from the stands for just $5, with the proceeds going to Telethon to support children in need across the State.

Football West chief executive Jamie Harnwell said it was a huge month for Perth soccer fans.

“It’s incredible that people not only get to see them during a match but get to see these great players train during the day, and even better, it’s not just about that it’s also about supporting Telethon as well,” he said.

“It is unbelievable to pay $5 to come and watch two Serie A teams here in Perth. I’m not sure you’d get that price anywhere in the world.”

Harnwell said he was thankful that this “great opportunity” was for kids in need across WA as well as the football community.

AC Milan will train at 4.30pm on May 30, followed by AS Roma later that evening at 6.30pm.

Tickets for the training sessions go on sale at 10am, May 2, on Ticketmaster.

Harnwell said he expected tickets to be snapped up fast as ticket sales for the coveted match at Optus Stadium had been selling like hotcakes.
