before the game, buyers have already purchased a significant portion of the
lower bowl at Reliant Stadium since the match was announced. Powerhouse English
club Manchester United, the opponent for the MLS All-Stars, arrived in the United States on Monday to begin preparation for
their North American tour that includes matches in Toronto,
Philadelphia, and Kansas
City, and culminates at the 2010 AT&T MLS All-Star Game in Houston.
“We are happy to see the positive
response from not only Dynamo fans, but sports fans throughout Houston and Texas with
regard to this historic event,” said Dynamo Chief Operating Officer Chris
Canetti. “The atmosphere on July 28 will be electric, and it will be an event
no one wants to miss.”

the 2010 AT&T MLS All-Star Game will be priced as low as $20. The offer
will be available through July 19 and requires a minimum purchase of four
