Juventus to face A-League XI

Italian champions Juventus will travel to Australia next summer for a friendly against an A-League All-Star side.

The tie will take place at the ANZ Stadium in Sydney on August 10 and Juve are thought to have agreed to bring their big names.

“This will be a night to remember,” stated David Gallop, the CEO of the Australian Football Federation.

“The confirmation of Juventus is another boost to the growing international stature of the A-League.

“The All-Stars concept is all about presenting the A-League on the world stage and the presence of Juventus in Sydney will guarantee huge domestic and international interest.”

The All-Star side may feature Juventus idol Alessandro Del Piero should he sign a new contract with Sydney FC.

Del Piero spent 19 years with the Old Lady before leaving the Turin giants at the end of his contract in the summer of 2012.
