Juventus are scheduled to face a Major League Soccer all-stars team in Atlanta on August 1 as part of their pre-season buildup.

An announcement on the clubs official website confirmed the  game will be held at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, home of Atlanta FC:

Juventus will be heading to the United States this summer to be the opponent for Major League Soccer’s annual All-Star Game set for 1 August in Atlanta, Georgia.

The 23rd edition of the MLS summer showcase, Juventus will face a squad featuring the best from the ever-growing American league at the recently-opened Mercedes-Benz Stadium, home to MLS side Atlanta United FC and the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons.

With prior opponents like Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal, the MLS All-Star game is one of the biggest events of the summer and this will be Juve’s first time to take part.

“We are happy to represent European football in this year’s MLS All-Star Game,” said President Andrea Agnelli. “It’s an opportunity to get closer to the passionate American soccer fans. For many years, Juventus has considered the United States and Canada as a crucial market for growing our presence as shown by the opening of our new academies and our digital strategy that has greatly expanded the possibility to connect with fans on this continent. The first team and the game, however, will be the main show that Juventus offers and we are proud to be in Atlanta.”
