  • 2009 All-Star Game, Inter Milan, Rio Tinto Stadium

Time for a little All-Star game talk. I know I usually bash it but anytime we get actual news on who the annual league opponent will be it’s worth mentioning.

Steve Goff wrote this morning in his Morning Kickaround that Inter Milan is being looked at as a serious contender to play in this summer’s All-Star game in Salt Lake City.

As for the All-Star Game, we are now hearing that the league has had serious talks with Inter Milan about playing the MLS select squad at Rio Tinto Stadium in Salt Lake City. It would be part of a multigame North American tour for Inter. Two other unidentified European clubs and two Mexican sides are in the all-star mix as well (no South American contenders, from what I understand). A final decision is expected within a few weeks.

Say what you will about the All-Star game, getting a Milan would be pretty cool to see. In my mind it would be right up there with Chelsea in terms of good picks by the league for oppoenets.

I still don’t enjoy the concept of this game but I’ve come around to just accepting that it won’t change anytime soon to an actual All-Star game (you know, East v. West and not MLS v. someone else).

What do you all think of Inter being the possible All-Star game oppoenet?

    I actually Prefer MLS vs TBA the old east west or usa vs world styles are rather dull in my view. besides without assigning something like home field in the final like baseball or another sort of prize the players have even less to play for. At least with this format there's league pride and the joy of playing against the best on the line. Plus it grows the league name overseas, after all we haven't lost an all-star game yet.
