Just a quickie update here.
Representatives from MLS, AT&T and the Philadelphia Union are set to come together tomorrow for an announcement on details for the 2012 MLS All Star Game. The advisory give states the group “will discuss the competitive aspects of the 2012 AT&T MLS All-Star Game – the most compelling event of its kind in North America.”
Alrighty then. Word on the street is the all star opponent could be announced tomorrow – though it could be more about this technology that the league announced today too. While there is no representative from any foreign club listed, it makes sense for the league to announce it fairly soon to get the hype machine up and running on this game.
Chatter online says it will be another EPL side, likely Chelsea. Yes, another EPL side making it’s second appearance in the All Star Game. The Blues were apart of the 2006 game in Chicago.
I was hoping to see a non-EPL side this year but I suppose beggars can’t be chooser huh?
