The 2014 AT&T Major League Soccer All-Star Game, the 19th consecutive Major League Soccer All-Star Game, is scheduled to take place on August 6, 2014 (9:30 p.m. ET) at Providence Park, the home of MLS club Portland Timbers. The game will be televised live on ESPN2, UniMás and Univision Deportes Network in the United States, TSN and RDS in Canada, and in more than 130 countries worldwide.[1]

Bayern Munich is the second European team not from Great Britain to play in the All-Star Game, following A.S. Roma in the 2013 MLS All-Star Game. As such, they are the first German team to play in the All-Star Game. They will also be the first defending FIFA Club World Champions to play in the All-Star Game after winning the 2013 FIFA Club World Cup.
