Red Bull Arena to host 2011 MLS All-Star Game


Red Bull Arena will play host to the 2011 MLS All-Star Game on July 27th, Major League Soccer announced on Tuesday.

No opponent has been identified for the match yet. MLS has used a format featuring a team of all-stars against international club teams in recent years. FC Barcelona will be on tour in the United States during the summer and could wind up being the international opponent.

What do you think of this news? Praying MLS can land an opponent like Barcelona? Want to see a return to the East vs. West format?

    Um “carry the league”? Seattle, while admittedly great, is in year 2. Toronto just had the final, and it was a poor showcase. Portland and Vancouver 2 new teams. East coast bias? What?

    Our energy drink team owners just spent $200M of their own money on that awesome stadium, after cities in NY and NJ dicked around for years trying to build a stadium. You don’t think the league can throw them a bone?

    I agree this was totally underwhelming though and tired of “major announcements”
