Atleti is to participate in the 2019 MLS All-Star Game, a friendly match which will be played at Florida’s Orlando City Stadium on July 31 and will be broadcasted in over 170 countries. We will face a squad of stars from the Major League Soccer, a competition made up by 24 clubs from the US and Canada.
It will be the 24th edition of the MLS All-Star Game. Since its inception in 1996, big European clubs such as Chelsea, Manchester United, AS Roma and Bayern Munich have participated in the event.
Orlando City Stadium – the venue for the game – is home to Orlando City Soccer Club, hosts 25,500 spectators and was inaugurated on March 5, 2017.
The game will serve as a reunion for Antoine Griezmann and his friend Carlos Vela, who were teammates at Real Sociedad between 2011 and 2014. The Mexican is Los Angeles FC’s current captain and the top scorer of this season’s MLS.
