Some of Australia's best young soccer players are about to descend on Macarthur.

Members of the Olyroos - Australia's under-23s national squad - will visit Lynwood Park this Sunday, September 8 to spend some time with local fans of the round-ball game.

Their visit coincides with the Macarthur Football Association grand final day.

Macarthur Football Association general manager Salv Carmusciano said it was a coup for the local organisation to welcome the young guns.

"It's not every day that you get a national team out to Lynwood Park," he said. "I think it will be a great day for everyone. The players will hold a bit of a clinic as well and the kids will be able to see that this is what's possible if you work hard."

Carmusciano said everyone from the community was welcome to head to the St Helens Park sportsground on the day.

The Olyroos visit comes ahead of their game against New Zealand at Campbelltown Stadium on Monday, September 9.

The team hasn't played in Australia for years and the game against our Pacific neighbours is serving as preparation for the 2020 AFC U23 Championship in Thailand.
