The Philadelphia Union will have more of a presence as the MLS All-Star Game's host team after all.

Midfielder Michael Farfan was added to the MLS roster by Ben Olsen Tuesday, joining Union captain Carlos Valdes as All-Star members from the host team. Farfan is not replacing anybody on the roster, but is instead increasing the number of players on the matchday roster to 19. The addition comes a day after Chelsea's request to increase the amount of substitutes in the game be increased to 10 was accepted by MLS.

Farfan has a goal and four assists on the season and has emerged as one of the Union's top attacking threats in his second season in the league.

Think Farfan is deserving of the spot? Should it have gone to someone else on the Union instead?
