Valencia to Appear in MLS All-Star Contest

Word out of Spain confirms the speculation by Steve Goff that Valencia will be the All-Star opponent.

VALENCIA / D. RODRÍGUEZ The Major League Soccer, which is how it is called, plans to formally announce within days that Valencia will be the guest of the event except for this year. The target date is next July 29. The venue, the newly opened Rio Tinto Stadium in Salt Lake City.

Read about it here in Spanish (or Google translated version).

With the dire financial situation for Valencia this could be an interesting situation to keep an eye on over the next few months. It will also be interesting to see if the La Liga club is forced to sell off high profile players between now and then.

What are your thoughts about this announcement?
