Global soccer megastar Sam Kerr has swapped Chelsea blue for Spiderman red and taken the plunge as the Fight MND fundraising effort headed west.

Kerr was the first celebrity to take part in the West Coast Eagles’ Mini Freeze at Optus Stadium.

Dressed as the iconic Marvel character, Kerr was dumped into an icy pool in front of thousands of Eagles fans.

Once she emerged from the freezing cold water she went again, sticking her head back under to the cheers of the crowd.

Kerr said the battle to fight a cure to motor neurone disease is one close to her heart.

“I know a lot of people affected by it,” she said.

I’m glad to be here supporting a great cause and having a bit of fun while doing it.”

Kerr was unveiled as the Eagles’ number one ticket holder in 2019 and is the brother of premiership player Daniel.

She is visiting her hometown Perth as part of Chelsea’s Women’s Super League off-season, just weeks after winning both the league and the FA Cup with the Blues.

She will also be handed the keys to Perth City at a ceremony during her visit.

Kerr revealed she will spend four weeks in Western Australia.

The Mini Freeze will continue throughout the Eagles’ clash with Geelong with AFLW captain Emma Swanson and 7NEWS personality and former West Coast player Adrian Barich to also enter the icy water for a good cause.

It comes after Australian cricket legend Justin Langer, retired tennis champion Ash Barty, Neale Daniher’s brother Terry and more big names took to the Big Freeze slide at the MCG on Monday.
