Because the LA Galaxy are scheduled to host the Puerto
Rico Islanders in a 2010-2011 CONCACAF Champions League match on Tuesday, July
27, Arena has asked Kinnear to lead the All-Star training sessions on Monday,
July 26 and Tuesday, July 27, as well as serve as his assistant coach on
gameday. Kinnear coached the 2009 MLS All-Star team to a 1-1 draw against
Everton at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, UT.

Fans and media may continue to vote for the MLS All-Star
First XI through July 6. One-fourth of the total vote for the First XI will come

and media members. The MLS All-Star First XI will be announced on Tuesday, July

Arena and Kinnear will collaborate to select five
additional All-Stars who will join the two Commissioner’s selections to complete
the 2010 AT&T MLS All-Star Game roster. The entire 18-man roster, including
