2011 Allstar Game

Garber: Red Bull Arena a special place for All-Star


Smaller venue no deterrent as MLS seeks big-time opponent

NEW YORK – Very big team, very special stadium.

That’s the unquestionable appeal to the 2011 AT&T MLS All-Star Game on July 27 at Red Bull Arena, as the league looks to bring an opponent with global recognition to a stadium some consider one of the best in the world.

MLS Commissioner Don Garber addressed the media Tuesday afternoon on the heels of the league’s All-Star announcement earlier in the day, stressing the benefits of a prime time opportunity for the league’s superstars and the sparkling new 25,000-seat stadium which made its debut in Harrison, N.J., last year.

The league has not announced an opponent yet for the match, but Garber stressed that fans should expect a side with the caliber of previous teams who have ventured stateside for the summer showdown: Celtic, Chivas de Guadalajara and Manchester United, who suited up against the MLS All-Stars in front of more than 70,000 fans at Reliant Stadium in Houston.

The New York market will host the event for the first time since the now-defunct Giants Stadium played host in the league’s inaugural season in 1996 and then again in 1997.

“We were very focused on bringing an MLS event to the New York metropolitan area this year, whether it was MLS Cup or our All-Star game,” Garber said. “We always go through a process … but I’d have to say that we were very focused on New York. We didn’t spend much time thinking about another location.”

Added Garber: “Returning to New York makes a lot of sense for us. … [Red Bull Arena] is one of the great stadiums of its size in the world.”

Major League Soccer announced on Monday that storied English club Manchester United will return to the United States this summer to again face the best of MLS in the 2011 AT&T MLS All-Star Game.

The Red Devils took on the MLS All-Stars in 2010, coming away with a 5-2 win in front of more than 70,000 fans at sold-out Reliant Stadium in Houston.

The sold out crowd in Houston last year did . Plus, it's just for fun for players and fun to watch for the fans. Lots and lots of goals in this game, or at least it was like that last year.

Hoping for a better contest this time unlike last year's match. Macheda and Gibson looked incredible in that match, that's how bad MLS All-Stars played.

Ridiculous that someone like Jack Jewsbery gets in, but not Brad Davis. That guy should be closer to the freaking national team than missing an All-Star game. Where is the love for this guy?

Yeah 5-2 is not excusable . But this time, we have got Chris Wondolowski . But in all seriousness, the MLS might be able to better. If only they could pick out a better roster.

One thing that I'm wondring about is, why does the MLS continue scheduling a game against Manchester United? They are the champions of the best league in the world and defeated them by three goals already last year. Couldn't they schedule someone easier, like River Plate .

Today, the commisioner-Don Garber- selected two more players for the MLS All-Star team. They were Juan Agudelo and Omar Bravo, a homegrown player and a Designated Player.

A good selection in my opinion.
