Olympic medallist Michael Jamieson and World Championship medallist Fran Halsall will lead the European challenge against a USA team that also features double Olympic champion Ryan Lochte.
British Swimming Head Coach Bill Furniss said: “The European Allstars features by far the strongest line up we’ve ever seen in what will be the third of these exciting biennial events.
“The USA are sending a very strong team so the challenge facing the Europeans will be immense but it will provide a great spectator event at the home of next year’s Commonwealth Games.”
