Major League Soccer announced on Wednesday that Colorado Rapids head coach Pablo Mastroeni will lead a teams of MLS All Stars against an international giant of the game in Denver this July.

Slated to take place on Weds., July 29 at 9pm ET, the MLS All-Star Game now has a date, time and locale... but who will take on the All Stars?

Last season saw the All Stars beat Bayern Munich 2-1, with All Stars coach Caleb Porter getting a rather notorious cold shoulder from Pep Guardiola and staff. Bayern was rumored to be interested in a rematch (presumably to assert their dominance). The league has also yet to welcome a La Liga giant like Barcelona or Real Madrid.

Seven of the 11 non-MLS opponents have come from England, though the last two matches featured AS Roma and Bayern Munich. In the past, CD Guadalajara, Celtic, Everton, West Ham United and Fulham have played the villain, with Manchester United and Chelsea each coming twice.

The league will also bring back the Homegrown Game for a second season.
