All you need to know about the A-League All Stars

Ahead of Friday’s friendly against A-League All Stars Women, find out more about our Australian opponents.

The A-League All Stars fixture was founded in 2013 for men’s football, but this year represents the first time that they have a women’s team.

This year’s A-League All Stars team will be managed by Arsenal supporter and former Gunners manager Joe Montemurro, who led our team between 2017 and 2021.

Joe won the League Cup in his first season with us and the WSL title in his second campaign; it was our first in seven years at the time.
