[MLS ALL-STAR GAME] Reigning European and German champion Bayern Munich will face the MLS All-Stars in the 2014 AT&T MLS All-Star Game Aug. 6 at Portland's Jeld-Wen Field. The game will mark the first time a German team has served as an opponent for the MLS all-stars and the first time the game has been played in Portland, where the Timbers have sold out every MLS game since their launch in 2011.

Bayern's trip to Portland makes sense on two fronts. It's part of the move by the German league (Deutsche Fussball Liga) to expand its reach in the United States. It is successful on many fronts, but it lacks behind the EPL, Liga Liga and Serie A in terms of international appeal.

Portland is also the U.S. headquarters of German manufacturer adidas, which owns a minority interest in Bayern and is the MLS equipment sponsor.

The game will be the first major MLS event following the 2014 World Cup, which will have ended three and a half weeks earlier.

The game will be televised live on ESPN2, UniMas and Univision Deportes Network (UDN) in the United States, TSN and RDS in Canada, and in more than 130 countries worldwide.

The 2014 All-Star Game will mark the 11th time an international opponent will take on the MLS All-Stars, who have a 6-3-1 record.
