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.

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.”

  1. From Arjun Niranjan: A Win for Bayern Munich will be a win for football romantics. To see one of Europe’s most history rich German clubs crush the upstart MLS all-stars (who’ve only been in existence for a measly twenty years will be an absolute joy.

  2. Bundesliga needs to start making inroads into the US like they have done in Japan. The FOX TV deal is a start and games like this will hopefully help, though I don’t see many German clubs coming to the US in the summer as they have so many world class facilities in their own backyard and tend to stay there.
