A day after the word came out that the New York Red Bulls would not take part in the All-Stars for Hope Charity Soccer Match at Giants Stadium on June 14th, now comes word that the event's organizers have lined up a new club to take part.
Copa Libertadores champions and recent FIFA Club World Cup runners-up LDU Quito are set to take part in the event, which is set to include such world stars as Cristiano Ronaldo, Thierry Henry, Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard. Sources have told SBI that a deal is being finalized to bring in the Ecuadorian club to replace the Red Bulls, which never reached an agreement with organizers to participate.
For more information about the match, go to the All-Stars for Hope website.
