bayern munich Bayern Munich to Play In 2014 MLS All Star Game, Says Report

Bayern Munich will play in the 2014 MLS All-Star Game, according to a press report in Germany.

The match between Bayern Munich and the MLS All-Star Team will be played in Portland. A date hasn’t been set for the game yet, but while the match is typically played in late July, this year’s All-Star Game is more likely to be played in mid-August due to the World Cup finishing on July 13.

Bayern Munich recently announced that they’re opening an office in New York City to expand its brand in the United States.

According to Joerg Wacker, the Bayern executive with responsibility for internationalization and strategy:

“It’s true, I’ve been there and looked at the premises.

“We want to build a network and increase our efforts to position the brand FC Bayern in the U.S.”

Meanwhile, the German website Abendzeitung reports that Bayern Munich are considering playing a friendly during the winter break on the east coast of the United States.
