[DATEBOOK]Portland will be the host of the AT&T MLS All-Star Game for the first time in 2014. The annual event will pit MLS's all-stars against an international club in late July or early August, 2014, at JELD-WEN Field, home to the Portland Timbers, who have sold out every game since their arrival in MLS in 2011.
“The Portland Timbers and their passionate fans have certainly earned the honor of hosting the 2014 AT&T MLS All-Star Game,” said MLS Commissioner Don Garber. “This match will showcase to an international audience the incredible devotion to the game in the Pacific Northwest that serves as one of the most important stories for our league.”
The 2014 All-Star Game will mark the 11th time that an international club has played the MLS All-Stars, who are 6-2-1 going into the July 31 game against Roma in Kansas City.
