On Wednesday Nov. 20 , during a press conference held at the LAFC’s Bank of California stadium, Councilman Curren Price joined MLS Commissioner Don Garber, LAFC owner Tom Penn, Liga MX Executive President Enrique Bonilla, Mayor Eric Garcetti, Council President Herb Wesson and Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas to celebrate the announcement that the MLS All-Star Game will be held in the summer of 2020 at the Bank of California stadium in the NEW 9th.
"This is not just a game for us," said Councilman Curren Price. "It is our community, a source of pride and for many, a way of life. Hosting the game in South LA is historical."
The MLS All-Star team will be matched against the top players of Liga MX next July for an unparalleled match with some of the world’s finest athletes.
The expectations are high in this battle of skills, strength and experience, with one thing for certain: the pulse of electricity is being felt throughout the community and all throughout Los Angeles in anticipation of the game.
