The brand new Avaya Stadium will play host to next year's showpiece match and Quakes president Dave Kaval is delighted to see the celebration come to San Jose and the Bay Area.
"The city and the [San Jose] Sports Authority have done an amazing job of packaging this stadium as a world-class venue for events," Kaval told MLSsoccer.com.
And I think we're starting the see the results of that, and today is a great celebration of it. As we get more of these events, truly world-class, we'll be able to have more things happening here.
"The community and economic impact of these things is tremendous." The new soccer-specific stadium, which has a capacity of 18,000, was only opened in March this year and Kaval is pleased that the stadium will get more than 12 months' use out of it before hosting such a prominent match.
"I think the  All-Star Game could have gotten lost," Kaval added.
"So what I wanted to do was make sure we had one full year in the building, all the excitement of that inaugural season and then make the All-Star Game the lighthouse for the second year."
This year's All-Star game sees the MLS select pitted against Premier League club Tottenham at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Colorado.
