MLS All-Star Game in Atlanta almost out of tickets

Tonight’s MLS All-Star Game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta is down to standing-room only tickets, according to the league.

The game between the All-Stars and Juventus will set a single-game record for tickets sold for an MLS All-Star Game. The previous record of 70,728 was set in Houston in 2010. That game featured Manchester United.
