Back during MLS Cup weekend, a rumor surfaced that KC was one of the finalists for hosting the 2011 All Star game, and the rumored opponent was going to be Spanish giant, Barcelona. Today the same person, Steve Davis posted again about the rumor, saying that both Barcelona as the opponent and KC as the host was continuing to gain steam.
Shortly after the initial rumor dropped, during a live web chat with fans after the rebranding, Robb Heineman talked about the potential of hosting MLS Cup or the All Star game. Heineman said he'd love to host either of the events in 2011, but didn't know if it'd be possible, saying 2012 or 2013 were more likely for hosting.
Certainly things can change between November and today, but with Davis' history of not really knowing KC and what's going on here I do take what he says with a grain of salt. It would certainly be a fun day though to see the MLS All Stars in KC take on Barcelona. But with the opening of the stadium, the Gold Cup, and potentially the All Star game could it be a bit of overload for KC fans?
