Pack your bags for Toronto Gov! West Ham to face MLS all-stars Mar 13, 2008 04:30 AM, Morgan Campbell, Sports Reporter Major League Soccer has finally settled on an opponent for its all-star game in Toronto this summer, and the Star has learned it will be English Premier League's West Ham United. The game, which marks the second time in three years the MLS all-stars will face an English team, takes place July 24. MLS first drifted away from the traditional intra-league all-star game format in 2001, when its all-stars played the U.S. national team. Since then, all but one all-star game has featured a team of MLS standouts against a team from overseas. Last summer, the MLS all-stars defeated Celtic in Denver, and in 2006 Scarborough's Dwayne De Rosario scored the only goal in the MLS all-stars' 1-0 win over Chelsea. The league announced last year that Toronto would host the 2008 all-star game, and the deal with West Ham, currently in 10th place in the 20-team Premier League, ends rumours linking teams like Liverpool and Newcastle.

This is interesting, there were strong rumours of Craig Bellamy leaving West Ham to join Toronto FC. I guess this will give him a chance to be shown the city by Robinson. Govnor, what city are you in right now? I'd have to check with the missus, but I doubt there would be an issue.

1) The only way Bellamy goes to any MLS team, is if he's got some kind of long term injury that Prem teams won't stand for.

He was (when fit) our best striker this year. He is Prem class, easily.

2) I appreciate it!! I'm in Indianapolis...I'd have to look into this a bit more closely (costs etc) as money is tight this year.

Oh I agree he is prem class, that's why everyone was salivating about it here. Robinson has said that he is going to try and schmooze him to Toronto. I don't really see it happening though. Crunch your numbers and I'll let you know when tickets go on sale!

I know a lot of people that travel regularly to Indiana. I'll see what I can find out for you about deals. The rate regular flyers pay is about half of the posted prices from what I have found.
