MLS Allstar Game

by Taylor Dawson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Monday was a full day for the All-Star Events leading up to the MLS All-Star game against AS Roma this Wednesday at Sporting Park.

Due to rain, the MLS held its morning press availability at the Downtown Marriott.  An afternoon press conference was held in the Gallery inside Kansas City’s Power and Light District, and featured both teams, including AS Roma, where team members made their first official All-Star public appearance in Kansas City.

Roma’s head coach Rudy Garcia and All-Star players Francesco Totti and Michael Bradley were all available to answer media questions.

Following Roma was Sporting KC’s head coach Peter Vermes, as well as players Graham Zussi and Thierry Henry.

Later in the afternoon, MLS All-Star Marco Di Vaio took on music artist Macklemore in the video game before the rock star’s concert scheduled for the Power and Light District.

The activities didn’t stop in the afternoon. All-Stars and Sporting KC players were scheduled to participate in the Brush Creek Kick, a charity event, where the players attempted to score a goal across the creek.

To end the day, the AT&T MLS All-Star Concert featuring Macklemore and Ryan Lewis is being held in the living room of the Power and Light District.

It’s the first full day of All-Star week for Kansas City, and Kansas City soccer fans, and it’s only going to get busier.
