All Star Game Coming to KC


Look what I found on Ticketmaster tonight.

Once again it looks like Ticketmaster has let an announcement out of the bag early that the MLS All Star game is coming to Kansas City this year.

Last year it was rumored that Kansas City was a finalist for the All-Star Game, but lost out to Philadelphia.  This year though it appears that Kansas City will be hosting the event.  This will be the second straight year that KC would host a summer all star  game after the city hosted last year's MLB All-Star Game.

Since last year there'd been rumors that KC would get to host the event this year.  Then today the rumor came back up.  It really picked up when it was announced by the team that Don Garber would be doing a Q&A with media at Livestrong Sporting Park on Thursday.  The assumption was that the All Star game would be announced at that time as well.

But with it already being posted on Ticketmaster it would appear that the game will take place on July 31st of this year.  If the information there is to be believed, then the tickets will go on sale in a pre-sale to Season Ticket Holders on Friday the 11th through the end of January.  And tickets would go on sale to the general public on February 8th.  Ticket prices look like they'll be priced between $30.00 and $350.00 before you factor in the Ticketmaster fees.

I doubt we'll see an announcement on the opponent on Thursday, I figure that will come a little bit later, but let the grand speculation begin on the foreign team that will be coming to KC to play the MLS All Stars.

UPDATE: Ticketmaster has pulled the game from the site at this time.  Thank God for screen shots.

Great scoop Mike. It looks like STH pre-sale starts Friday.

(Disregard my previous comment about the STH pre-sale as you have updated the main post).

You may still regard the compliment on the great scoop!

Actually, the All Star Game coming to KC was reported on KC Confidential on Monday morning.

LOL Hearne's blog? Do people actually still read that?

Anon,

To be fair: Matthew Donnelly did post this: http://www.kcconfidential.com/2013/01/07/donnelly-2013-mls-all-star-game-kc-bound-possibly-not-livestrong/

But that post said two things about the MLS All-Star game -

1) Likely in KC (Many odds were already heavily in favor of that per last year's discussion and Garber's quotes)
2) Late July - The MLS All Star game has been in late July since 2007.

But there was no proof like Mike was able to find. That was the scoop I was referring to. Now if KC Confidential could tell me the opponent that might be interesting!

This is a game that has brought me a lot of memories. Previously, I used the lucky patcher apk techbigs to download this game for free and hack this game.
