The Juventus squad boasts 11 players who took part in the 2014 FIFA World Cup and also includes new signing Patrice Evra, who will make his second appearance in the All Stars match after representing Manchester United in last year’s fixture.
The Juventus stars will take on the Foxtel A-League All Stars side that includes one of Juventus’ greatest players of all time, Alessandro Del Piero, who will play his final match in Australia after a two year stint with Sydney FC.
Del Piero played 705 matches for Juventus and holds the record for the most games and goals in the famous black and white strip of the Bianconeri, scoring 289 goals.
The Italian maestro will be joined by Hyundai A-League stars Thomas Broich, Besart Berisha, Gui Finkler, Youssouf Hersi and Socceroo goalkeeper Eugene Galekovic in what is shaping as another memorable day for Australian football.
“We are incredibly excited to be welcoming Juventus to Sydney for the Foxtel A-League All Stars match and fans are in for a real treat now that we have had the Juventus side confirmed,” said Football Federation Australia CEO David Gallop.
“Andrea Pirlo, Gianluigi Buffon, Carlos Tevez, Paul Pogba and Patrice Evra are global football stars and their presence in Sydney will not only be a thrill for the fans at ANZ Stadium, but signals yet another significant moment in what is a breakthrough period for Australian football.”
NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for Tourism and Major Events Andrew Stoner said: “With both the Juventus and Foxtel A-League All Stars squads now finalised, the excitement is certainly building for their clash at ANZ Stadium and we look forward to the arrival of one of the world’s best football teams, reigning Serie A champions Juventus, in Sydney.
“Juventus has confirmed all of its stars will be in Sydney for the match and I have no doubt Australian football fans will be excited to see Alessandro Del Piero line up against some of his former Juventus team mates.
“The NSW Government, through our tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, secured this match in partnership with FFA exclusive to Sydney, Australia's premier sports and major events city.
“Juventus has a world-wide fan base of 250 million, including 1.4 million Juventus faithful in Australia. By hosting this champion team, Sydney and NSW will again be on show to the world, confirming our position as Australia’s home of major events.”
