The annual kickoff to the French soccer season is making its way to the United States, and the current home of one of the most prolific Frenchmans of all time will play host.

The 2012 Trophee des Champions, also known as the French Soccer Cup, will take place this season at Red Bull Arena on July 28. It is the fourth consecutive year the game will be played outside of France, but the first time it will be in a venue where the primary language is not French.

The game inside of the Thierry Henry and the New York Red Bulls' home stadium will see the winner of the French first division take on the French Cup Champion, and is scheduled for a 3pm kickoff. Some of the teams in contention to play in the match are Olympique Lyon, Montpellier, Paris Saint-Germain and third-division side Quevilly.

What do you think of Red Bull Arena hosting the Trophee des Champions? Planning on attending? Rooting for or against Quevilly making it?
