North Queensland Fury marquee signing Robbie Fowler will arrive at Townsville Airport at 12.50pm tomorrow.
The Fury are encouraging local supporters to turn up and welcome the Liverpool legend to North Queensland.
Expat Suzanne Ollerton's family had been Liverpool season ticket holders before moving to Australia and told the Townsville Bulletin: "It's strange he is here. We couldn't believe it when we found out.
"Townsville is a similar-sized city to where we lived in the UK and for us to have someone we know and followed move here is pretty exciting."
