Garber, Donovan, Henry to address All-Star Game announcement
Fans eager to follow the news surrounding Tuesday's announcement of the 2011 AT&T MLS All-Star Game can listen in on a teleconference discussing the event featuring Commissioner Don Garber and superstars Landon Donovan of the LA Galaxy and Thierry Henry of the New York Red Bulls on MLSsoccer.com at 3:30 pm ET.
Red Bull Arena will host the MLS All-Star Game on July 27, with details and the MLS opponent to be announced at a later date.
This year’s All-Star Game will mark the third time the metropolitan New York area has hosted the mid-summer showcase; the inaugural MLS All-Star Game in 1996 and the second in 1997 were played at Giants Stadium. The 25,000-seat Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J. has played host to multiple friendlies between the Red Bulls and international clubs, along with select national team matches, but the 2011 AT&T MLS All-Star Game will be the first marquee MLS event at the $200 million venue.
For the eighth time, the MLS All-Stars will face a high-profile international club. Past All-Star Games have featured opponents such as Manchester United, Celtic, Chelsea, and Chivas de Guadalajara.
All Red Bulls Plan Holders will receive priority access to purchase seats to the All-Star Game prior to the general public, with Full Season Plan Holders having the first opportunity, followed by 10-Game and 5-Game Plan Holders. Full details of pricing and purchasing windows will be released at a later date
