Brisbane Roar players have been sent into overdrive after engaging the local community at a host of appearances and events across the Brisbane region.

Across just three days, squad members were seen promoting football camps, presenting jerseys, helping raise funds for charities and even recording their unique heartbeats.

The fun kicked off with Roar goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne presented jerseys at Padua College, while midfield dynamos Massimo Murdocca, Matt McKay and Luke Brattan helped promote the Hyundai Goodwill Ball at Garden City Westfield.

One of the 32 balls representing the participating nations at this year-s FIFA World Cup, the four metre Goodwill Ball has been touring the country collecting well wishes for the Socceroos on their South African adventure.

Adding their own messages of support, the Roar trio also happily signed autographs for the on-hand Roar fans.

The Roar-s tour around Brisbane stepped up a notch the next day with the club appearing at four separate events in one day.

Roar striker Reinaldo was invited as a special guest to the jersey presentation at Villanova College, while Luke DeVere chatted to fans about his football career at the Brisbane Boys College football season launch.

Ivan Franjic and Mitch Nichols helped promote Starlight Day for the Starlight Foundation, while Matt Smith, Henrique and Shane Stefanutto joined Socceroos fans in recording their heartbeats for the Sony Pulse of a Nation promotion at Westfield Carindale.

The recorded heartbeats will add a unique beat to the official Qantas Socceroos' team song written and performed by Australian act the Rogue Traders.

Day three of the promotion trail saw new Roar recruit Smith pay a visit to the Queensland Big Issue ‘Street Soccer- camp - a program the club has proudly supported for a number of years - while club mascot Roary was spotted having fun and joining in the action at the Ipswich Knights Optus small sided games.
