MLS All-Star Game to feature London's Fulham

Joining the bandwagon of bringing European teams to the US to make some cash is Major League Soccer, who today announced that the league's 10th All-Star game, to be held on July 30th at Columbus Crew Stadium, will forgo the East-West matchup in favor of a unified MLS All-Star squad taking on Fulham FC from the English Premier League.

Fulham, currently sitting in 15th place on the EPL table, has two former MLS All-Stars and current US National Team players on its roster: Forward Brian McBride, who played in Columbus from 1996-2003, and Defender Carlos Bocanegra formerly of the Chicago Fire.

The match will be televised nationally on ABC.
