Each year the MLS announces who the MLS All-Stars will be facing at the MLS All-Star game and each year the opponent seems to get better and better. This year the opponent is none other than Real Madrid, one of the most decorated teams in all of football history.

The match will take place on August 2 at Chicago’s Soldier Field that has a stadium capacity of 61,500. The stadium will be jam-packed to see the likes of Ronaldo, Benzema, Ramos, Bale and more.

MLS; Real Madrid is one of the most successful clubs in the history of the sport, having won a record 32 La Liga championships and 11 UEFA Champions League titles, as well as capturing the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup on multiple occasions. Managed by legendary French midfielder Zinedine Zidane and headlined by stars Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Sergio Ramos, Real Madrid currently sits atop the La Liga table and hold a lead over Bayern Munich heading into the home leg of their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal series.

Real Madrid is no stranger to the MLS as the team trained in Montreal for a whole week at Montreal's training facility, they had nothing but good to say about the place and now we could potentially see some Impact players themselves come up versus the world's best.
