For the second summer in a row, Kansas City is hosting an all-star game. Sporting Park, home of Sporting Kansas City, will the be site of the Major League All-Star game July 31. Major League Soccer hasn't announced who the league's best players will take on in the game (last year the all-stars beat British club Chelsea), but they released the logo for the game over the weekend.
The league described the logo this way: "The 2013 AT&T MLS All-Star Game logo, designed by Major League Soccer, features the colors of Sporting Kansas City - Sporting Blue and Dark Indigo - in celebration of the club's avid fan base and the vibrant soccer movement happening in greater Kansas City. Detail of the iconic canopy roof structure at Sporting Park highlights the world-class venue that will serve as the perfect setting for the League's 18th-annual summer showcase."
MLS all-stars have a record of 6-2-1 in all-star games against international teams. Sporting coach Peter Vermes will manage the MLS team. The stadium will host another big game in October, when the U.S. Men's National Team will play a World Cup qualifying game.
