The match is expected to attract a crowd of more than 80,000 spectators.
Robertson, a Collingwood fan, has been busy promoting the game down under off the back of his Crucible triumph, raising hopes of a professional event in Australia.
His appearance on the pitch before the match - as well as a live TV interview at quarter time - will further boost snooker's profile.
Robertson has also met with Bob Hawke, the former Australian prime minister (pictured), who is supporting his nomination for the Australian Sporting Hall of Fame.
Hawke is a patron of the Australia Billiards and Snooker Council.
