26,760 people filled Red Bull Arena to watch the MLS All-Stars take on Manchester United in the 2011 MLS All-Star Game. You read that right.. Red Bull Arena was SOLD OUT… and all it took was the MLS All-Stars and a visit from one of the biggest clubs in the world Manchester United.
Sadly that is the good news. On the pitch Hans Backe coached the MLS All-Stars like he coached New York Red Bull in the Playoffs… Not very well. In the stands Red Bull Supporters chanted like it was a New York Red Bull home game… Not very loud.
Manchester United have now beaten the MLS All-Stars each of the last two seasons by a combined scored of 9-2… Still not as EMBARASSING as the Seattle Sounders losing to Manchester United 7-0.
