Melbourne Victory recruit Harry Kewell visited Etihad Stadium recently ahead of his first A-League match on Saturday 8 October.

The Socceroos star will take to the field against Victory's fierce rival Sydney FC in the club's opening match of the A-League season.

The recruitment of Harry Kewell, along with the news that fellow Socceroo Brett Emerton will play for Sydney FC this season, has grabbed the interest of fans and the media in Australia.

Kewell is considered one of the best Australian soccer players in history and his inclusion in the side is sure to intensify the already fierce rivalries Melbourne Victory has with many of the A-League's other teams.

Etihad Stadium will host five matches during the 2011/12 A-League sason including blockbusters against Sydney FC, Adelaide United and cross-town foe, Melbourne Heart.
