Tottenham Hotspur to face 2015 MLS All-Stars

We enjoyed three tough matches last summer in North America and the quality of football in MLS continues to grow every year.

Major League Soccer today announced that their 2015 MLS All-Star Game, which is set to take place on July 29 at Dick’s Sporting Good Park in Colorado, will see the league’s all-star squad take on the Tottenham Hotspur of the English Premier League.

Tottenham, which are led by the dynamic Harry Kane, currently sit seventh in the English Premier League table.

Preseason is an important time for us and we are looking forward to being a part of one of the biggest events on the US football calendar. We know that the Colorado Rapids, one of our inaugural clubs, will be great hosts and that Dicks Sporting Goods Park will impress both the fans in the stadium and television viewers throughout the world.

The MLS All-Stars are 7-3-1 against international competition, having faced Manchester United (2010 & 2011), Everton (2009), Chelsea (2006 & 2012), Roma (2012) and Bayern Munich (2014).

Last year’s All-Star Game saw the MLS All-Stars defeat Bayern Munich (Bundesliga) 2-1 in Portland.. The fact that this will be our only fixture outside of Europe during preseason says a lot about how we view this game. We know the quality of the facilities will be top-class and we see this fixture against the best players from MLS as good preparation.”

The game will be televised live on FOX Sports 1, UniMs and Univision Deportes Network (UDN) in the United States, TSN and RDS2 in Canada, and in more than 100 countries worldwide.

The AT&T MLS All-Star Game continues to be one of the most entertaining and widely anticipated traditions for our league and for our sport in North America, MLS president and deputy commissioner Mark Abbott said in a statement. “We’d like to thank Major League Soccer for the invitation to take part in the 2015 All-Star Game, Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino said in a statement. We are excited to welcome another world-class opponent in Tottenham and look forward to a competitive match and a tremendous week of events
