Major League Soccer today officially announced that Manchester United will be the opponent in the 2011 MLS All-Star game to be played at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey on July 27 at 8:30pm ET.

The game will be a rematch of the 2010 MLS All-Star Game when Manchester United were victors. It’ll be the eighth time that a MLS All-Star team has played against an international opponent. New York Red Bulls members (i.e. registered fans) will be given first priority to purchase tickets before being made available to the general public. Ticket details can be found here. The game will be televised live on ESPN and TeleFutura.

MLS Talk exclusively revealed that Manchester United would be the MLS All-Star opponent more than three weeks ago.

What are your thoughts about Manchester United being selected as the opponent for the 2011 MLS All-Star Game? Do you think the MLS All-Star team can avenge the loss they suffered last season (the first loss against an international opponent in the history of the MLS All-Star Game)? And what are your thoughts on why MLS decided to play the game at Red Bull Arena instead of the New Meadowlands Stadium? Post your opinions in the comments section below.
