‘I haven’t picked a team for Saturday. I do know a bit about footy, I saw the Swans’ semi-final and I thought it was an incredible advert for the sport.

‘I did open the World Cup and that was quite scary to do. That was a big deal. This is Australia so I’ll be more relaxed. I love the MCG, I’m honoured to be part of it, honoured to be playing it.’

‘The rest of the world deserves to know about this sport because it’s easy to get hooked.’

‘You are the greatest performer in the world and we are the greatest game. We should do something together,’ Rogers reportedly said to the star backstage after An Evening with Robbie at at Rod Laver Arena in May, The Herald Sun reported.

That opened a discussion that led to the pop star finally accepting the job.

Robbie confirmed the good news of his impending performance in July.

‘I am so excited to be performing for all the fans, on the hallowed turf of the MCG, for the biggest game of the year,’ he said in a statement.

‘I can’t wait to see you all on that last Saturday in September,’ the Let Me Entertain You hitmaker added.
