DENVER (AP) - Major League Soccer says the home of the Colorado Rapids will be the site for the 2015 All-Star Game.

The contest will be played July 29 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colorado. It features the best MLS players against an international club that has yet to be announced, the league said Wednesday. The All-Star Game also was held in Colorado in 2007.

Commissioner Don Garber says Colorado has become “a destination for marquee soccer events” and that he’s thrilled to bring the game back to the region. This will be the 12th time an international club has played the MLS All-Stars, who have an 8-3-1 record in those matches.

Rapids coach Pablo Mastroeni will lead the All-Star squad.
