The Major League Soccer All-Star Game presented by AT&T and featuring miCoach, the world’s first professional soccer team tracking system from adidas, will pit the best MLS has to offer (meaning Thierry Henry and 17 scrubs) against Chelsea Football Club of London, England and the Barclay’s Premier League on Wednesday, July 25th, 2012 at PPL Park in Chester, Pennsylvania. Fancy.

Chelsea is on of seven English clubs to be lined up for the MLS summer showcase, and the first club not named Manchester United since 2009. Chelsea lost to the All-Stars 1-0 in the 2006 edition played at Toyota Park.

In addition to their All-Star Game participation, Chelsea will hit Seattle, DC, and New York on their Stateside tour.

Philadelphia Union season ticket holders will have first crack at tickets. Remaining tickets go on sale on Wednesday, May 9.
