Star Wars is one of the world’s most powerful brands and football is the world’s biggest sport. Like football, Star Wars has super fans that span the globe, it’s a hugely successful franchise and to incorporate this into a round of the Hyundai A-League is very exciting," FFA Chief Executive David Gallop said.

“We are constantly looking to engage with new audiences and expand the football family, and this partnership provides a great way to do so in what is mutually beneficial for both parties."
