Colorado Rapids head coach Pablo Mastroeni, who played for the MLS All-Star team when Denver last hosted the event in 2007, will serve as the head coach of the All-Stars.
Tottenham will bring a familiar face in defender DeAndre Yedlin, who started at right back for the MLS All-Stars in 2014 against Bayern and was selected to the 2013 team by MLS Commissioner Don Garber, the first rookie since 2005 to receive the honor.
“We’d like to thank Major League Soccer for the invitation to take part in the 2015 All-Star Game,” Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino said in a statement. “The fact that this will be our only fixture outside of Europe during preseason says a lot about how we view this game. We enjoyed three tough matches last summer in North America and the quality of football in MLS continues to grow every year.
“Preseason is an important time for us and we are looking forward to being a part of one of the biggest events on the US football calendar. We know the quality of the facilities will be top-class and we see this fixture against the best players from MLS as good preparation.”
Tickets are expected to go on sale next week.
