“It’s an honor for us to be the first German club to play the MLS All-Star Game,” Bayern Munich head coach Pep Guardiola said in a statement. “MLS is experiencing great development and we are very much looking forward to compete against the best players of MLS.”
Bayern recently revealed plans to open an office in New York to position themselves at the centre of the ever-growing United States soccer market.
“It’s true, I’ve been there and looked at the premises,” Joerg Wacker, the Bayern executive with responsibility for internationalisation and strategy, told Abendzeitung in early November.
“We want to build a network and increase our efforts to position the brand FC Bayern in the U.S.”
