FFA chief Gallop wants A-League All-Stars as permanent fixture

Football Federation Australia chief executive David Gallop is hoping to bring in the A-League All-Stars fixture as a permanent event.

An A-League select will take on Premier League giants Manchester United in July next year and Gallop feels it would be a great initiative to bring an overseas club down under every year as an annual challenge match.

"It's something the players really liked being part of and having the fans involved in the selection process will add an element as well," Gallop said.

"It's a good way to launch the all-stars which should become part of the A-League every season. To play against Manchester United is a great way to launch it.

"It's become something really exciting across the world in sporting competitions and we want to be part of that."
